PEREIRA, Luciana Barbosa; ABRAO, Ana Cristina Freitas de Vilhena; OHARA, Conceição Vieira da Silva  e  RIBEIRO, Circéa Amália. Maternal experiences with specificities of prematurity that hinder breastfeeding. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.1, pp.55-63. ISSN 0104-0707.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0104-07072015000540014.

A qualitative study which has Symbolic Interactionism as theoretical framework and Interpretative Interactionism as its methodological one, aiming to unveil motherly experiences against prematurity peculiarities that hinder breastfeeding during infant's hospitalization at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Were interviewed 13 mothers of preterm infants assisted at an Outpatient Follow-up Clinic of Montes Claros MG, Brazil. Results show that as trying to breastfeed a premature infant, the mother interacts with situations signified by her as obstacles to breastfeeding: the "torment" of their child's hospitalization and clinical instability, the fear of baby's death, its difficulty to suck, the late start of breastfeeding interpreted a something difficult, as a risk to weight. We consider that although breastfeeding a preterm infant is a challenge, appropriate professional conducts and hospital procedures might facilitate it and therefore should be implemented, aiming at promoting, protecting and supporting breastfeeding.
