Exploring the Postpartum Learning Needs of Adolescent Mothers and Their Mothers

Purpose: Mothers of adolescent mothers provide their daughters with valuable mother/baby-care information during the postpartum. There is little evidence to indicate the postpartum learning needs of adolescent mothers and no evidence to indicate the learning needs of their mothers. The purpose of this study was to describe the postpartum learning needs of adolescent mothers and their mothers and to determine the differences between the learning needs of the two groups. Theoretical framework: Transition theory guided this investigation. Subjects, Method, and Analysis: The Postpartum Teaching Questionnaire was adapted to administer to a convenience sample of 50 mother/daughter dyads during postpartum hospitalization. Adolescents were low-risk English speaking first time mothers between 12 and 19 years of age with low-risk infants. Repeated measures MANOVA, repeated measures ANOVA, paired t-tests, and Kendall’s tau coefficient were used to analyze data. Results: There were no differences between adolescents and their mothers on baby items (p=.593), but there were differences on maternal items (p=.020). Mothers and daughters differed from one another in their need to know about emotions and mood changes (p < .001), resumption of sexual activity (p <.001), and birth control (p=.009). Mothers and daughters rated information about circumcision care, infant illness, cord care, and safety the most important baby-care content to learn. Mothers rated information about perineal care, postpartum problems, and birth control the most important maternal-care content to learn, while their daughters rated information about perineal care and postpartum problems the most important maternal-care content to learn. Conclusions: Findings indicate that there are more similarities than differences between the learning needs of adolescent mothers and their mothers. These data provide knowledge for maternity nurses to consider for use in practice and serve as a foundation for future research to improve nursing care of adolescent mothers. AN: MN030162
