Young mothers' breastfeeding experiences : A qualitative interview study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med föreliggande kvalitativa studie var att undersöka unga svenska mödrars upplevelser och erfarenheter av amning för att öka förståelsen för kvinnors subjektiva amningsupplevelse. Studien syftade även till att undersöka hälso- och sjukvårdens och den sociala omgivningens roll i amningsupplevelsen. Nio semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes och analyserades genom tematisk innehållsanalys. Resultatet utgjordes av fem teman: Ömsesidigt utbyte, Oskrivna amningsregler, Att inte klara uppgiften, Någon att vända sig till och När stödet brister. Resultatet visade på informanternas syn på amning som naturlig och det bästa för barnet. Amningen beskrevs vara en viktig del av moderskapet och amningssvårigheter var förknippade med känslor av misslyckande och otillräcklighet. I resultatet framkom hur kvinnorna upplevde en press att amma, från både omgivningen och hälso- och sjukvård. Studien visade även på de unga mödrarnas behov och avsaknad av gemenskap och socialt stöd i relation till amningen.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this qualitative study was to examine young mothers breastfeeding experiences in order to gain a better understanding of women’s subjective experience.  Furthermore, the purpose of this study was to examine how the health care system and the women’s social environment influenced the breastfeeding experience. Nine semi-structured interviews were conducted and analyzed by thematic analysis. The analysis resulted in five main themes: Mutual exchange, Unwritten rules of breastfeeding, Unable to manage the task, Someone to turn to and When the support fails you. The results showed the women’s view of breastfeeding as natural and the best option for the child. Breastfeeding was described as an important part of motherhood and breastfeeding difficulties were associated with feelings of failure and inadequacy. The women experienced pressure to breastfeed, both from the health care system as well as their social surroundings. The study showed the young mothers’ lack of and need for social support and sense of belonging in regards to breastfeeding.
