Purpose: To evaluate the effects of a nursing intervention on breastfeeding (BF) duration among primiparous women who plan to breastfeed and return to work after childbirth and to determine factors that influenced duration of breastfeeding. Roy’s Adaptation model was used to guide the selection of variables. Method: An experimental pre and post-test control group design was used. One hundred sixty-six primiparous women were randomly assigned to an experimental (n=81) and a control (n=85) group. Findings: No differences were found between groups of mothers who breastfed their infants at 4 and 16 weeks postpartum. Data showed a trend in favor of the experimental group when mothers combined breastfeeding and work at 4 (E=8; C=3) and at 16 weeks (E=41; C=36). However, the proportion was non-significantly different. No differences between groups were found in BF knowledge, attitude, support, satisfaction, and BF problems at both times. BF duration was influenced by BF knowledge, attitude, satisfaction and BF problems during the first 4 weeks. Only BF satisfaction influenced BF duration at 16 weeks postpartum. BF duration was negatively significantly correlated with number of hours worked and the timing of mothers’ returning to work. Findings showed benefits of prenatal BF education on BF duration.
