SOUZA, Maria Helena do Nascimento; NESPOLI, Antonella  e  ZEITOUNE, Regina Célia Gollner. Influence of the social network on the breastfeeding process: a phenomenological study. Esc. Anna Nery [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.4, e20160107.  Epub 28-Nov-2016. ISSN 2177-9465.  https://doi.org/10.5935/1414-8145.20160107.

Objective:

The aim of this study was to understand the influence of women's social network during the breastfeeding process.

Methods:

Qualitative research was conducted, based on Alfred Schütz's phenomenological sociology framework and Sanicola's social network approach, at a primary health care unit in Monza - Italy. Eleven women were interviewed using semi-structured interviews.

Results:

Three categories were found through comprehensive analysis: routine family support, professional counseling to overcome difficulties and understanding and support perspective. Social network members who had the highest influence on the decision to breastfeed and to maintain it were: husbands, participants' mothers, friends and nurses. The relationship with these members meant assistance, counseling and expectations for understanding and support.

Conclusion:

Knowledge of the social network of these women is an important resource for health professionals to seek interaction and strengthening of this network as well as to provide more effective actions for breastfeeding promotion, protection and support.
