Les pères et l'allaitement maternel : connaissances, information et implication : étude au sein d'une maternité de type III de la région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes

Abstract : Breastfeeding is a part of our culture. The father plays an essential role in the choice, duration and support of breastfeeding. Our study has been carried out in a type III maternity ward in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes' region. Paper self-questionnaires were distributed to fathers following childbirth on the second or third day of hospitalization. The study involved 146 questionnaires. The main objective was to evaluate fathers' knowledge about breastfeeding. Secondly, the study looked at the information received and collected as well as their involvement. Fathers' knowledge is good but heterogeneous. Averages varied positively with the number of children, breastfeeding history, participation in birth preparation and parenting sessions and socio-professional category. The majority of the information they received was provided by midwives and was considered satisfying. Fathers who had received no information were in need of. About the subject of involvement, a number of means to be implemented have been proposed. During pregnancy and after returning from the maternity ward, the family life aspect was the most given. During the hospitalization, the ways used were more focused on the psychological aspect. The study revealed the need to increasingly include fathers in the care pathway during consultations, birth and parenting preparation sessions, during childbirth and maternity by using informative tools. It seems to be important for professionals to be involved and have the will to guide fathers in the way of their expectations.
