Initiating breastfeeding is an existential challenge
University of Borås, School of Health Science.

Abstract [en]

For most women in Sweden, breastfeeding is an essential part during the childbearing period. Nearly all women initiate breastfeeding but, due to different reasons, almost one fourth of the women stop or wean breastfeeding the first weeks or months after birth. That is often earlier than they had expected. Therefore few women follow the recommendations on breastfeeding. Until now, in-depth knowledge that aims to understand the meaning of initiating breastfeeding from women’s perspective is scantily explored. In order to develop care that enables mothers to breastfeed as recommended, or as long as they want to, it is thus necessary to complement previous research and explore breastfeeding from the percpective of the women.
