Breastfeeding has returned as a popular form of infant feeding but without a preceding generation of role models. The purpose of this project was to determine the tertiary needs of breastfeeding mothers and to compare those needs in two groups, those who attended antenatal breastfeeding classes and those who did not. The conceptual framework supported the identification of stressors in preventive intervention organized by the structure of Neuman's Health-Care Systems Model.



The sample was composed of 100 breastfeeding mothers evenly divided into research and control groups based on attendance at antenatal breastfeeding class. The study was conducted using an original 43-item questionnaire composed of open and close-ended questions. The instrument was pre-tested and content validity was established by a panel of experts. Sixty questionnaires were returned.



Data were coded for computer analysis utilizing the Statistical Analysis System 'LIFETEST' procedure at the 0.05 level of significance. Descriptive statistics were used to describe the sample.



Survival estimates demonstrated that previous breastfeeding experience was significant at the 0.035 level regardless of class attendance. A predominant tertiary need was identified as an inability of mothers to determine a sufficient milk supply. The tendency of breastfeeding mothers to seek information and support was reconfirmed.



Nurses are urged to consider methods of tertiary follow-up for their breastfeeding clients to reduce stressor impact and to promote reconstitution through adaptation. Several possible tertiary interventions are recommended such as: postpartum follow-up of breastfeeding mothers by a nurse, support groups, or a crisis phone contact. The result can be a utilization of coping skills that will carry over as a learned response to stressors.
