Abstract:
Objective: To assess the effect of post-discharge telephone breastfeeding support on reducing the risk of early weaning from mother's stated goal. Literature Review- Data Sources: Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group trials register; PubMed; Med Line; CINAHL; Proquest; Ovid; Academic Search Premier: Health Source: Nursing/Academic Edition; Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts; PsychARTICLES; PsychINFO. Search terms: breastfeeding, lactation, support, duration, cessation, weaning, and telephone support. Restricted to English, full text, published January 1997-December 2008. Study Selection: 78 articles met the inclusion criteria: peer review, journal articles, human subject, clinical trial, meta-analysis, practice guideline, and review. Data extraction: Quality review conducted utilizing the Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice Research and Non-Research Appraisal methodology (Newhouse, et al 2007). Data Synthesis: The positive effect of post-discharge breastfeeding support on increasing the duration of breastfeeding is well documented in the literature.? Methods: Pre-intervention base-line data obtained via: brief telephone survey conducted with breastfeeding mothers 6 months prior to intervention and data obtained regarding breastfeeding duration and perception of breastfeeding support; telephone survey of local pediatric practices was conducted and breastfeeding initiation and 6 month duration data obtained for babies born in January 2009; WIC breastfeeding data for January-July 2009 obtained. Intervention: first-time breastfeeding mothers meeting the eligibility criteria, self-selected by completing the enrollment form [N= 34]; telephone support included weekly calls for three months, then monthly calls for three months, or until the mother weaned. Data obtained from the mothers were analyzed utilizing Ethnonursing methodology and descriptive statistics. Results: The provisions of a structured telephone support decreased the relative risk of early weaning, empowered participants to meet/ overcome challenges, and meet their stated goal.
