NURSING RESEARCH 2 PICOT Question Over the past years, the government of the United States of America has recognized the significance of breastfeeding and the nutrition of the infant. Various campaigns by government agencies have recommended and encouraged exclusive breastfeeding for infants in the first six months after birth due to the associated benefits. Such benefits include reducing the risk of ovarian and breast cancer, providing essential antibodies and nutrients to the infant as well as speeding up the metabolism of the mother to help bring back pre- pregnancy weight. With such benefits of breastfeeding to both the infant and the mother, an individual may wonder if lack of education or the education a mother receives during post-partum or pre-partum have an impact in her initiation of breastfeeding or duration rate. The objective of this paper is to investigate the impact of breastfeeding education on the initiation rate of breastfeeding through a PICOT format. The PICOT question states, “Among pregnant women, how does breastfeeding education on admission compared to prenatal education (or none) influence a mother’s decision to initiate breastfeeding?” P – Pregnant women I – breastfeeding education on admission C – Prenatal education (none) O – Influence on mother’s decision to initiate breastfeeding T – after the intervention Qualitative Study Research Critic Introduction Breastfeeding comes with many benefits, not only to the infant but also the mother.

Because of such benefits, the American Academy of Paediatrics (AAP) and the World Health Organization (WHO) recommend women to feed their children with breast milk alone for the first six months, preferably for one year, and thereafter extend the infant breastfeeding duration for up to two years.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
