Breastfeeding study shows need for effective peer counseling programs
Date:8/28/2014

which serves low-income mothers, and nine from Full Bloom Pregnancy and Early Parenting Center, which tends to serve middle income, highly educated mothers, Anderson said.

Roughly 75 percent of the mothers who participated in the study reported negative or no support from their clinician or hospital staff regarding breastfeeding.

"It's surprising because as a clinician that should be the first step, to talk about breastfeeding with pregnant women and new mothers," Anderson said. "The support does take some time, and they don't have time. If you're going to talk to mothers about breastfeeding, it's going to take you at least 30 minutes to an hour to do it effectively."

Anderson said he hopes the study shines light on the critical role clinicians and lactation specialists play in teaching and encouraging breastfeeding.

"Clinicians should be targeted to educate them about breastfeeding support," he said. "I also think that to save the clinicians some time, (hospitals and communities should) run a peer counselor program and refer patients to such programs for support."
