Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Objectives- To determine if a structured educational program could improve breastfeeding rates and which educational modalities are most influential. Method- A prospective evaluation of a standardized multimedia based educational program tailored to maximize breastfeeding initiation rates was performed. Breastfeeding initiation rates for patients presenting to an urban prenatal clinic were tracked using historical data sets for comparison. Subset analysis based on age and ethnicity was performed to evaluate their influence on breastfeeding. A smaller cohort was then surveyed using a postpartum questionnaire to evaluate what influences impacted on their decision to breastfeed. Setting- An urban perinatal tertiary care center providing prenatal/maternity services to an urban population in northeastern United States. Patient Population- 1545 ethnically diverse women aged 13 to 47 years receiving prenatal care in the maternity clinic were followed from intake to their immediate postpartum course. Interventions- In June of 2003, the clinic environment was enhanced by including pictures of ethnically-sensitive breastfeeding mothers and improved bi-lingual educational brochures. Each clinic counselor was given a protocol book delineating specific literature, video viewing, and discussion to be administered at each trimester with documentation of completed education. Follow-up at the six-week postpartum visit included the offering of a voluntary, self-administered postpartum questionnaire regarding the patient's choice of interventions/factors influencing feeding choice. Main Outcome Measure- Rates of breastfeeding initiation prior to any interventions (yr. 2000) were compared to the five years following, using the New Jersey Electronic Birth Certificate data entry system. Questionnaire responses were evaluated using Chi-square analysis. ( p< 0.05) Results- Rates of initiation showed an increase from 40% in 2000 to 71% in 2005.
