Maternal experience of breastfeeding support, both from health professionals as well as from social media while breastfeeding twins (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bröstmjölk är en komplett näringskälla för det nyfödda barnet. Förutom att tillföra barnet alla näringsämnen hen behöver så ger bröstmjölken energi, bygger upp kroppen samt skyddar det nyfödda barnet mot sjukdomar. Amning är ett samspel mellan mamma och barn som påverkas av många faktorer. För en tvillingmamma är initiering av amning en större utmaning än för en mamma som fött ett barn, då omvårdnaden kring barnen blir dubbel. Syftet med studien var att beskriva tvillingmammors erfarenhet av amningsstöd, dels från vårdpersonal, dels från sociala medier, för att initiera och upprätthålla en fungerande amning. Studien är en intervjustudie med kvalitativ metod. Datamaterial samlades in genom intervjuer av sex utvalda tvillingmammor. Mammorna söktes och valdes ut via en Facebookgrupp. I resultatet framkom två kategorier: Mammans initiativ och Vårdpersonalens engagemang. Resultatet tyder på att de intervjuade mammornas erfarenhet är att vårdpersonal idag saknar den specifika kunskapen om/och förståelse för hur mycket arbete det innebär för en tvillingmamma att få amningen att fungera. Många mammor söker idag den information de inte erhållit via vårdpersonal på annat sätt, oftast via sociala medier. Utifrån den här studien kan vårdpersonal få en ökad förståelse för tvillingmammors behov av extra amningsstöd och information.

Abstract [en]

Breast milk is a complete food source for the newborn. In addition to supplying the baby all the nutrients it needs breast milk also provides energy, builds up the body and protects the newborn against disease. Breastfeeding is an interaction between mother and child that is affected by many factors. For a twin mother is initiation of breastfeeding more of a challenge than for a mother who gave birth to a child, then care about the children becomes twice.The purpose of this study was to describe the mother of twin´s experience of breastfeeding support, both from health professionals as well as from social media, to initiate and maintain a functional breastfeeding. The study is an interview study of qualitative method. Data material was collected through interviews with six selected twin mothers. The informants were sought and selected through a Facebook group. The results revealed two categories: The mother's initiative and The involvement of health professionals. The result indicates that the interviewed mothers experience is that health professionals today lack the specific knowledge and understanding of how much work it means for a twin mother to get a functional breastfeeding. Many mothers today are using other sources in seeking the information they did not receive by health professionals, mostly through social media. Based on this study, health professionals might gain a greater understanding of the need twin mothers have for more support and information regarding breast feeding twins.
