Représentations de l’allaitement maternel chez les médecins généralistes du Finistère Sud. Étude qualitative par entretiens semi-dirigés

Abstract : 52, 2 % of newborn were breastfed in 2016 in France, with a rate that dropped quickly and early. The objective of the study was to assess general practitioners breastfeeding representation and their place in the breastfeeding promotion. This qualitative study with semi-directed interviews included 11 South Finisterian general practitioners from a sampling based on various criteria, from August to November 2020. The interviews were transcribed verbatim and analyzed by axial open coding. The population was exhaustive on several criteria such as gender, family breastfeeding experience, gynecological ant pediatric practice and ongoing training. The results show an ambivalence of representations between willingness to respond to WHO’s and PNNS’s recommendations and adherence to a social standard based on their personal experience. General practitioners have expressed difficulties regarding the conciliation between breastfeeding returning to work and extended breastfeeding. They affirmed their main desire is to support the mother and to be neutral regardless of the way her child is fed. This ambivalence has enabled us to reflect on the different ways to improve the follow-up of the infant and its mother by the general practitioner. Reflecting on the origin of its own representation will be decisive in supporting parents in making a free and informed choice. Training, knowledge of the benefits of prenatal setting, multidisciplinary practice including a link with occupational medicine are the main lines of work for the future.
