Abstract:
The purpose of this paper was to develop a best practice protocol for breastfeeding education among Mexican-American mothers. The author will first identify and present the problem in regards to nursing and public health. She will then discuss the physiology of lactation; the specific focus will be on the physiologic and psychosocial advantages to the mother and infant. A brief overview of culturally specific values to people of Mexican heritage affecting motherhood, pregnancy, and childbearing will be presented. This will be followed by discussion of culturally specific attitudes and values affecting breastfeeding as well as the effects of acculturation on breastfeeding. The author will then present and discuss the available research pertaining to previously attempted interventions followed by her recommendations for best practice protocol, implementation, and evaluation of the proposed protocol.
