”Breastfeeding is not a quick fix” : Child health nurses’ experience of providing support for breastfeeding mothers – An interview study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet var att belysa BHV-sjuksköterskors upplevelser av att ge stöd till ammande mödrar.

Metod: En intervjustudie av kvalitativ design med en induktiv ansats. Semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes med 13 BHV-sjuksköterskor från vårdcentraler inom Västra Götalands län. Datan som samlades in analyserades med kvalitativ innehållsanalys.

Resultat: Två teman framkom. Ett tema blev Faktorer som främjar stöd vid amning. I detta tema har sex kategorier tagits fram som benämns Använda sin erfarenhet och specialistkunskap, Att kunna ge individanpassat stöd, Kunna bidra med utvidgat stöd, Gynna en avslappnad miljö, Motiverade mammor samt Förmedla vikten av socialt stöd. Andra temat är Faktorer som hindrar stödet vid amning. I detta tema har tre kategorier tagits fram som är Amning är komplext, Att det saknas resurser och Mammor som inte vill ha amningsstöd.

Slutsats: Om mamman slutar att amma så går både mamman och barnet miste om det positiva effekter amning har på anknytning och hälsa. Amning är komplext eftersom både mamma och bebis ska vilja och kunna amma samt passa ihop på ett både kroppsligt och mentalt plan. Därför upplevde BHVsjuksköterskan att det bör finnas mer tid till att ge amningsstöd, framför allt i början. Brist på tid vardock ett hinder för att nå detta. Mammor kan välja att sluta amma fastän det skulle kunna ha blivit en lyckad amning om hon fick det stöd som hon egentligen hade behövt. Det stöd som BHV-sjuksköterskan ger kan därför påverka amningens exklusivitet och längd samt bidra till minskat lidande för mamman.

Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim was to illustrate child health nurses’ experiences of providing support for breastfeeding mothers.

Method: An interview study of qualitative design with an inductive approach. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 13 child health nurses from health centers in Västra Götaland County. The data collected was analyzed with qualitative content analysis.

Result: Two themes emerged. One was Factors that promote support during breastfeeding where six categories have been developed called Using your experience and specialist knowledge, Being able to provide individualized support, Being able to contribute with extended support, Prioritize a relaxed environment, Motivated mothers and Mediate the importance of social support. The second theme wasFactors that prevent support during breastfeeding. In this theme three categories have been developed; Breastfeeding is complex, Lack of resources and Mothers who do not want breastfeeding support.

Conclusion: If the mother stops breastfeeding, both the mother and the baby will lose the positive effects breastfeeding has on attachment and health. Breastfeeding is complex because both mother andthe baby must co-work on both a physical and mental level. Therefore, the child health nurse should have more time available to provide breastfeeding support, especially initially. Lack of time, however, was an obstacle to achieve early breastfeeding support. Mothers can choose to stop breastfeeding even though it could have been a successful breastfeeding if they had received the support they really needed. The support provided by the child health nurse can therefore affect the exclusivity and length of breastfeeding and contribute to reduced suffering for the mothers.
