Abstract [sv]

Amningsfrekvensen har i Sverige successivt minskat för varje år och statistik visar kortare amningstid idag än för tio år sedan. Bröstmjölk är den ideala födan för barnet under de första sex månaderna. Den skyddar barnet mot ohälsa samt ökar överlevnaden. En betydelsefull del av arbetet för BVC-sjuksköterskorna är stödja och främja amning samt uppmuntra till upprätthållande av amning. Syftet med studien var att undersöka BVC-sjuksköterskors erfarenhet av amningsrådgivning. En kvalitativ forskningsmetod med deskriptiv design och induktiv ansats har använts. Specialistsjuksköterskor som arbetade på BVC intervjuades för besvarande av studiens syfte. Intervjumaterialet bearbetades med kvalitativ innehållsanalys. I resultatet framkom tre kategorier: Amningsrådgivningen baseras på riktlinjer, Behov av individanpassat stöd och Svårt och tidskrävande med amningsrådgivning. I studien framkom det att samtliga BVC-sjuksköterskor använde riktlinjer i amningsrådgivningen samt kompletterade dessa med annan kunskap och litteratur. BVC-sjuksköterskorna gjorde en individuell anpassning av amningsrådgivningen för att tillgodose mödrarnas personliga önskemål. BVC-sjuksköterskorna beskrev amningsrådgivningen som svår och tidskrävande. Resultatet av denna studie bidrar till insikt i vikten av kontinuerligt uppdaterade och förbättrade amningsriktlinjer samt ger en förståelse för BVC-sjuksköterskornas svårigheter med amningsrådgivningen. Studien kan också bidra till en ökad medvetenhet hos BVC-sjuksköterskorna av mödrarnas behov av individanpassad amningsrådgivning.

Abstract [en]

The breastfeeding rate has gradually declined in Sweden every year and statistics show shorter breastfeeding today than ten years ago. Breast milk is the ideal food for the baby during the first six months. It protects the baby against illness and increase survival. A significant part of the work for the nurses at child health service is to support and promote breastfeeding and encourage the maintenance of lactation. The aim of the study was to investigate the child health service nurses' experience of breastfeeding counseling. Qualitative research with descriptive design and inductive approach has been used. Specialist nurses working in child health service were interviewed for answering the study's purpose. The interview data were processed using qualitative content analysis. The results revealed three categories: Breastfeeding counseling based on guidelines, Need for personalized support and Difficult and time consuming with breastfeeding counseling. The study revealed that all child health service nurses used guidelines in breastfeeding counseling and supplemented these with other knowledge and literature. Nurses at child health service made an individual adjustment of breastfeeding counseling to meet the mothers' personal preferences. The child health service nurses described the breastfeeding counseling as difficult and time-consuming. The results of this study contributes to the understanding of the importance of continuously updated and improved breastfeeding guidelines, and provides an understanding of the child health service nurses' difficulties with breastfeeding counseling. The study may also contribute to an increased awareness for the child health service nurses, of the mothers' need for individualized breastfeeding counseling.
