Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Amning medför många hälsofördelar för både barnet, modern och för samhället. Gällande rekommendationer i Sverige är att barnet helammas de första sex månaderna. Statistik visar dock på en sjunkande amningsfrekvens. I barnmorskans profession ingår att erbjuda stöd och råd vid amning.

Syfte: Att undersöka kvinnors erfarenhet av amning, amningsinformation och amningsproblem.

Metod: Kvantitativ tvärsnittsstudie med deduktiv ansats där data samlades in genom enkäter i en SIFO undersökning utförd av Philips Nordic. Analys utfördes i SPSS och redovisas med deskriptiv statistik.

Resultat: Studiens resultat visade att många vänder sig till sjukvården för att få information och råd om amning men att de upplever brister i den information de får.  Många kvinnor uppgav att de haft problem med amningen och nästan en femtedel hade någon gång känt sig tveksamma till att amma.

Konklusion: Många kvinnor slutade amma tidigare än rekommenderat och en stor del upplevde problem och tveksamheter i samband med amning. För att få information och stöd vände sig många till sjukvården. Det visade sig dock att informationen och stödet från sjukvården var bristfällig vilket kan påverka amningsfrekvensen negativt. Sjukvården behöver förbättra den information och det stöd som erbjuds för att kunna vända den sjunkande amningsfrekvensen.  

Abstract [en]

Background: Breastfeeding brings many health benefits to the child, the mother and the community. Current recommendations in Sweden are exclusive breastfeeding the first six months. Statistics show a decreasing breastfeeding rate. The midwife's profession includes offering support and advice on breastfeeding.

Aim: To investigate womens experience of breastfeeding, information about breastfeeding and problems related to breastfeeding.

Method: A quantitative cross-sectional study with a deductive approach was used. Data was collected through a SIFO survey conducted by Philips Nordic. Analysis was performed in SPSS and presented by descriptive statistics.

Results: The results of the study showed that many women were turning to health care for information and advice on breastfeeding, and that they experienced deficiencies in the information they received. Many of the women reported that problems with breastfeeding had occurred, and almost one-fifth had felt uncertain to breastfeed.

Conclusion: Many women stopped breastfeeding earlier than recommended and experienced problems and uncertainties about breastfeeding. To get information and support, many women turned to the health care services. However, it appeared that the information and support was inadequate, which may adversely affect breastfeeding rates. Healthcare needs to improve the information and support offered to reverse the declining breastfeeding rate.
