Abstract [en]

Background:

Among Swedish mothers, breastfeeding duration has been declining in recent years. An instrument for early identification of women at risk for shorter breastfeeding duration may be useful in reversing this trend.

Objectives:

The aims of this study were to translate and psychometrically test the Swedish version of the Breastfeeding Self-Efficacy Scale-Short Form (BSES-SF), examine the relationship between breastfeeding self-efficacy and demographic variables, and evaluate associations with breastfeeding continuation plans in Swedish mothers.

Methods:

The BSES-SF was translated into Swedish using forward and back translation. The sample consisted of 120 mothers who, during the first week postpartum, came for a routine follow-up visit at the postnatal unit in a university hospital. The mothers were compared based on demographic data and their future breastfeeding plans.

Results:

The Cronbach's alpha coefficient for internal consistency for the BSES-SF was 0.91 and the majority of correlation coefficients exceeded 0.3. A 1-factor solution was found that explained 46% of the total variance. There was no difference in confidence in breastfeeding between mothers with early hospital discharge and mothers who received postnatal care at the hospital. Primiparas who stayed longer at the hospital were less confident in breastfeeding than primiparas who had a shorter hospital stay. Breastfeeding mothers who planned to partially breastfeed in the near future had lower BSES-SF scores, compared to those who planned to continue exclusive breastfeeding.

Conclusion:

The Swedish version of the BSES-SF has good reliability, validity, and agreement with mothers' plans regarding breastfeeding continuation and exclusivity.

Abstract [en]

Breast milk is beneficial for all infants, but especially for infants born preterm and optimizing breastfeeding can enhance health outcomes. Despite this, breastfeeding duration has declined in more than twenty years in Sweden and even more among preterm infants. Mothers’ self-efficacy is a modifiable factor that can affect breastfeeding duration and Breastfeeding Self-efficacy Scale-Short Form (BSES-SF) has been tested in several countries in order to identify mothers with low self-efficacy in breastfeeding, however, the scale has not been validated for a Swedish sample. Moreover, there is a need for evidence-based breastfeeding support programs adapted for the healthcare professionals (HCPs) working with mothers of preterm infants.

A first aim of the present thesis was to psychometrically test the BSES-SF among mothers to both term- and preterm infants and to examine whether self-efficacy predicts breastfeeding duration. A secondary aim was to evaluate a breastfeeding support program based on Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative for Neonatal Intensive Care (Neo-BFHI) and to describe HCPs’ experiences of the program.

Papers I and II show potential for BSES-SF to be used in research with the aim to identify mother’s self-efficacy in breastfeeding. In Paper III findings reveal that self-efficacy predicts the mother’s adaptation to the infant. This is an important finding as the mother's adaptation to the infant is closely related to the theories of bonding and attachment. Paper IV describes and evaluates a training program for neonatal intensive HCPs based on Neo-BFHI’s ten steps to successful breastfeeding, with main results indicating that the training program was appreciated by the HCPs. In Paper V, we constructed and evaluated an instrument that measures the attitudes to breastfeeding and skin-to-skin contact among neonatal intensive care units’ HCPs. Findings suggest that the instrument could be used to evaluate future Neo-BFHI interventions to improve breastfeeding duration as well as HCPs’ support and skills.

The main conclusion of this thesis is that mothers’ low self-efficacy in the early phase can be an important predictor for shorter breastfeeding duration. The breastfeeding training program was regarded as relevant and useful according to different HCPs categories and was shown to increase the HCPs’ interest in breastfeeding and provide them with tools for improved breastfeeding support. The program is designed in a way that makes it easy to copy and spread to other neonatal intensive care units in Sweden and it can also be used for newly employed HCPs.
