One of the nurses’ main responsibilities is to give support and information to her patients. Breast milk is the best nutrition for an infant and it is an old tradition and exists in all countries. In South Africa dies a fifth part of the new born children who are not breastfed during the first three months and only tenth part of these are exclusively breastfed. The mother spends many hours each day feeding her child. This is one of the reasons why she should be supported in the feeding method of her choice and enabled to accomplish it with skills, knowledge, confidence and pleasure. The study’s aim was to explore nurse´s experience of giving support and information around breastfeeding to newly delivered mothers in rural districts, South Africa.

Many of the difficulties they struggle with within their daily work also appeared in the result. The conclusion of the study was that the nurses understood the benefits of breastfeeding and tried spreading the significance by educating the mothers. The nurse made efforts of being available.
