Pregnant primiparas perceptions of breastfeeding (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund Amning minskar i Sverige liksom i flera andra länder, både i tidslängd och omfattning. Detta trots positiva effekter för både mor och barn. Personal inom mödra- och barnhälsovårdens har som uppgift att främja amning. Forskning visar att en positiv attityd till amning gynnar amningen som spädbarnsuppfödning.  Därför finns det anledning att undersöka blivande mödrars tankar om amning.

Syftet med studien var att beskriva hur gravida förstföderskor uppfattar fenomenet amning.

Metoden som användes var en kvalitativ studie där semi-strukturerade intervjuer användes för datainsamling. Totalt deltog 10 kvinnor i studien. Dataanalysen gjordes med fenomenografisk analysmetod.

Resultatet: Gravida förstföderskors uppfattning av fenomenet amning var att det är en naturlig process vid barnafödande. De uppfattade amning som ett självklart val före någon annan uppfödningsmetod. Ett eget val av kvinnorna som inte påverkades av omgivningen. Partnerns betydelse är viktig för kvinnan, då hon förväntar sig dennes stöd. Kvinnorna reflekterar över amning när andra ser, offentlig amning, men detta är inget hinder i hennes val att amma.

Konklusion: Resultatet visar att kvinnorna uppfattar amning som något naturligt de själva valt att göra. De upplevde att partnern var ett viktigt stöd. Kvinnorna hade reflekterat över amning när andra är närvarande då detta var något som uppmärksammats mycket i media.
