Maternal breastfeeding intentions are strongly associated with breastfeeding exclusivity and duration. Factors that affect new mothers' exclusive breastfeeding intentions have not been adequately examined.
A prenatal commitment to breastfeed is a strong predictor for breastfeeding success. Prenatal care providers have the opportunity to educate and promote breastfeeding. However, differences in education and training between healthcare providers such as physicians and midwives may result in differing breastfeeding outcomes. This study explores whether breastfeeding initiation and duration differ by prenatal care provider.
Given that breastfeeding is important to the health of infants and their mothers, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) goal is to ensure that new mothers understand the benefits of breastfeeding and, when they choose to breastfeed, have the supports they need to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding until they reach their goals. This report summarizes CDC's current contributions and investments in breastfeeding.
Research has shown that mother's obesity and underweight are major risk factors for reduced initiation, duration, and exclusivity of breastfeeding.
Breastfeeding has multiple benefits for both mother and infant. Previous studies have shown that Hispanic/Latina women have higher rates of breastfeeding and better health outcomes than non-Hispanic black (NHB) women of similar socioeconomic status. Our primary objective was to explore the association of race/ethnicity with breastfeeding rates and the impact of socioeconomic factors on initiation and continuation of breastfeeding.
We conducted an environmental scan using a mixed methods approach to determine the types and frequencies of breastfeeding resources available to mothers of infants in Canadian NICUs. Through interviews with key informants, we identified six categories of resources: breastfeeding-friendly layout, breastfeeding support personnel, breastfeeding education for mothers, breast pump-related resources, coordination of postdischarge breastfeeding support, and breastfeeding-related policies. Findings from this nation...

Various factors are known to influence breastfeeding practices. Limited research has been conducted to examine the influence of type of birth attendant on exclusive breastfeeding.
Health professionals supporting breastfeeding play an important role in women successfully achieving their breastfeeding goals.

A relational inquiry approach to breastfeeding practice offers a practical way to support women to better achieve their breastfeeding go...
Breastfeeding training has a crucial role in increasing healthcare professionals' attitudes and in improving professional support for breastfeeding.

Long-term breastfeeding, including exclusive breastfeeding for six months and continuation of breastfeeding with complementary food until two years of age, has been recommended by the World Health Organization. However, despite the clear benefits of long-term breastfeeding (six months and beyond), the rates of breastfeeding still continue to remain low. Although there are some individual interventional studies that aimed to increase prolonged breastfeeding rates among both multiparous and primiparous women,...
Breastfeeding education is known to be insufficient in pediatric (PEDS) training and is, in part, responsible for suboptimal rates of breastfeeding. No recent studies about the level of education provided to family medicine (FM) and obstetrics-gynecology (OB) residency trainees are available.
Little is known about the relationship between breastfeeding and hypertension. We performed this study to identify whether breastfeeding itself influenced maternal hypertension and whether degree of obesity or insulin sensitivity would contribute to the relationship between breastfeeding and hypertension in postmenopausal women.
One of the most critical junctures for community support of breastfeeding is the mother's return to work. When breastfeeding workers have access to both time and space for expressing breast milk, they are more likely to breastfeed for the recommended term, yet many mothers still struggle to access these simple accommodations in their workplace. Healthcare providers can and should aid nursing mothers in accessing these accommodations. One tangible way to offer support for continued breastfeeding upon return ...

In the USA, experiences of racism have been linked to poor health outcomes but racism relative to breastfeeding has not been extensively investigated.
Research has shown that women with low socioeconomic status and lack of breastfeeding support often breastfeed for shorter durations. Little research has been done on the effects of a breastfeeding peer support program for women from middle- to high-socioeconomic status.
The benefits of breastfeeding are well established, and breastfeeding is now widely practiced in the United States. Although increasing numbers of women with physical disabilities are having children, little information is available about breastfeeding practices among these women.
