Abstract:
PROPOSAL OF A CRITICAL QUALITATIVE ANALYSIS OF BREASTFEEDING IN MEXICAN PRIMPARAS
Conference Sponsor:Western Institute of Nursing
Conference Year:2010
Author:Shviraga, Bonita A., RN, CNM, MS
P.I. Institution Name:University of Colorado Denver; The Medical Center of Aurora
Title:Certified Nurse-Midwife, PhD student
Contact Address:245 Hoover Ave., Louisville, CO, 80027, USA
PURPOSES/AIMS: 1) To describe the culture care values, beliefs, and practices of recently immigrated Hispanic women surrounding infant feeding and breastfeeding
2) To investigate if (and how) culture, gender, and issues of power/marginalization affect recently immigrated Hispanic women's attitudes, beliefs, and practices regarding infant feeding and breastfeeding.
3) To understand how recently immigrated Mexican women respond to nurses' "authoritative" knowledge regarding breastfeeding, to determine how women "sort through" this information, and if and how they integrate this knowledge/information to create (produce) new unique understandings/approaches to breastfeeding.

RATIONALE/CONCEPTUAL BASIS/BACKGROUND:
Worldwide it is acknowledged that breastfeeding is the preferred method for feeding newborns, with significant health benefits for the mother and newborn. Recent breastfeeding duration statistics for Hispanic women in the United States and Colorado are below the goals of Healthy People 2010. It is assumed that Hispanic women in Colorado represent an underserved and marginalized group as evidenced by their culture's history in Colorado, their gender status within their culture, their immigration status, inability to speak English, and socioeconomic status. All these factors may affect breastfeeding duration. In order for nursing to increase and support breastfeeding in this population, it is important that we understand how these and any other factors may impact infant feeding and thus the likelihood and sustainability of breastfeeding.
METHODS:
The study will utilize Carspecken's method of Critical Qualitative Research (CQR)/Critical Ethnography which aims to link social phenomena to sociocultural historical events "exposing prevailing systems of domination, hidden assumptions, ideologies and discourses" (Hardcastle, Usher, & Holmes, 2006, p. 151). It supports transformative as well as interpretive concerns (Simon & Dippo, 1986). Therefore, with this critical ethnographic study this researcher hopes to move beyond the description of breastfeeding and infant feeding to identify power relations and system influences on breastfeeding and to empower women during breastfeeding.
RESULTS: Demographic and qualitative data will be analyzed. Focus group and interview data along with field notes and journaling will be entered into Atlas-Ti, a qualitative software program, for coding, text retrieval, data management, and content analysis soon after collection. Direct quotations of informants will be preserved. Analysis of data will be conducted through a critical qualitative iterative process as described by Carspecken.

IMPLICATIONS: This original study will provide new contextual knowledge regarding infant feeding with a focus on breastfeeding in recently immigrated Hispanic women. It will analyze their cultural values, beliefs, and practices along with our health care and political systems through a critical theory lens. With this understanding we can provide nursing care and institute system changes to most effectively increase breastfeeding in this population and ultimately improve the health of children in this population.
