Pregnant women´s thoughts about breastfeeding (English)
Abstract [sv]

Internationellt sett är amningsfrekvensen i dagens Sverige hög, men har minskat något senaste åren. Studier visar att inställningen till amning är positiv, men att kvinnor upplever svårigheter i samband med amning samt en brist på information och stöd. Syftet med fördjupningsarbetet var att belysa gravida kvinnors tankar om amning, amningsinformation och stöd. Studien genomfördes med kvalitativ ansats, där data samlades in genom fokusgruppsintervjuer med 18 gravida kvinnor hösten 2012. Data bearbetades med innehållsanalys. Analysen gav ett övergripande tema; Balans mellan förväntningar och svårigheter. Fem kategorier framkom; Att vara medveten om amningens fördelar, Att vara medveten om svårigheter med amning, Att planera för sin kommande amning, Att påverkas av sin omgivning och Att ha förväntningar på stöd inför kommande amning. Resultatet visade att gravida kvinnor var medvetna om amningens fördelar och svårigheter, omgivningen påverkade deras tankar och kvinnorna ansåg ofta att amningen ”löser sig naturligt”. Tydligast framkom kvinnors känsla av bristande kunskap om amningsproblem och en önskan att få amningsinformation sent i graviditet. Amningsinformation som ges under graviditet bör vara varierad, innehållsrik och förbereda föräldrarna på att amning kan vara påfrestande. Det är viktigt att involvera partnern i information och förberedelser för amning.

Abstract [en]

Internationally, the frequency of breastfeeding in today`s Sweden is high, but has declined somewhat in recent years. Studies showed that attitudes to breastfeeding were positive, but the difficulties associated with breastfeeding and lack of information and support also emerged. The aim of this master essay was to examine pregnant women`s thoughts about breastfeeding, breastfeeding information and support. The study was conducted with a qualitative approach and, data was collected through focus group interviews with 18 pregnant women in autumn 2012. Data was analysed with a qualitative content analysis. The analysis yielded an overall theme; Balance between individual expectations and difficulties. Five categories emerged; Being aware of breastfeeding benefits, Being aware of the difficulties of breastfeeding, To plan for their next lactation, To be influenced by their surroundings and To have expectations of support for the next lactation. The result showed that pregnant women were aware of breastfeeding benefits and difficulties, that environment affected their thoughts, and that the women often felt that breastfeeding “dissolves naturally”, The results revealed most clearly women`s perceived lack of knowledge about breastfeeding problems and a desire to get breastfeeding information late in the pregnancy. Breastfeeding information given during pregnancy should be varied and, extensive and prepare parents that breastfeeding can be stressful. It is important to involve the partner in information and preparation for breastfeeding.
