A home visit program for breastfeeding education and support. JOGNN 28(5), 480-485




A home visit program for breastfeeding education and intervention was developed to provide support for mothers and infants at risk for breastfeeding failure. This program was developed to supplement the Early Discharge Program for mothers and newborns who were discharged within 24 hours of delivery. A breastfeeding assessment tool was developed for use in the hospital and during the early discharge home visit. Home visits are provided by a registered nurse with mother-infant assessment skills and competence to provide breastfeeding education, problem management, emotional support, and referrals to lactation consultants or physicians as needed.
