BACKGROUND: Various natural products are reported to improve maternal milk supply yet are not necessarily safe for infants. Researchers have not systematically studied galactagogue teas for safety. Research Aim: This study evaluates the safety of a galactagogue tea in breastfeeding women and their infants, assessing short- and long-term adverse effects. METHODS: Healthy, exclusively/fully breastfeeding women ( N = 60) with no milk insufficiency were randomized into (1) an all-natural tea containing fruits of bitter fennel, anise, and coriander; fenugreek seed; and other herbs (Mother's MilkĀ® herbal tea; test) group or (2) a lemon verbena leaf (placebo) group...

BACKGROUND: Human milk is understood to be the optimal nutrition for infants, yet many women struggle to nurse. Although exclusively pumping human milk can provide a solution, women may be unaware of this possibility and, thus, experience unnecessary frustration. Research aim: This study aimed to (a) determine the proportion of respondents who had heard of exclusive pumping prenatally, (b) describe sources that respondents turned to and/or received breastfeeding-related information from prenatally, (c) explore the ways in which respondents learned prenatally about exclusive pumping, (d) describe how useful respondents found various information sources when learning about exclusive pumping, and (e) describe the differences between respondents who first heard the term exclusive pumping prenatally versus postpartum...

Background Several lactation assessment tools are available for in-hospital assessment of breastfeeding dyads, and their components vary widely. To date, no research has evaluated the perceptions of registered nurses (RNs) regarding the limitations and future improvements of these tools. Research Aim The aim was to describe RNs' perceptions of the limitations of currently used lactation assessment tools and how these tools could be enhanced. Methods Focus groups ( n = 7) were conducted with RNs ( N = 28) whose current responsibilities included in-hospital breastfeeding assessment...

BACKGROUND: Availability of professional lactation support has been associated with increased breastfeeding rates; however, data about access to international board-certified lactation consultants are limited. Research Aims: The aims were (a) to assess geographic access to international board-certified lactation consultants in Pennsylvania, (b) to compare access in rural/urban counties, and (c) to compare access by county-level breastfeeding initiation rates. METHODS: Using geographic information systems methodology and a cross-sectional observational design, we calculated the proportion of young children living within 15, 30, and 60 miles of international board-certified lactation consultants in Pennsylvania...

BACKGROUND: Medication use during pregnancy and lactation can be unavoidable, but knowledge on safety for the fetus or breastfed infant is limited among patients and healthcare providers. Research aim: This study aimed to determine (a) the prevalence of medication use in pregnant and lactating women in a tertiary academic center, (b) the types and safety of these medicines, and (c) the influence of medication use on initiation of breastfeeding. METHODS: This study used a cross-sectional survey among women ( N = 292) who underwent high-risk or low-risk deliveries...

BACKGROUND: Breastfeeding plays an important role in both maternal and infant health and well-being. While researchers have examined the relationship between postpartum psychological distress and breastfeeding behaviors, few have investigated links between prenatal distress, postpartum distress, and breastfeeding behaviors over time. Research Aim: We aimed to determine if prenatal breastfeeding beliefs and psychological distress during and after pregnancy were associated with initiation and early cessation rates of breastfeeding...

Research Aim The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of workplace lactation programs in the United States on breastfeeding practices. Methods A systematic search was conducted of seven databases through September 2017. Articles ( N = 10) meeting the inclusion criteria of describing a workplace lactation intervention and evaluation in the United States and measuring initiation, exclusivity, or duration using an experimental or observational study design were critically evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Intimate partner violence has been related to breastfeeding difficulties. Few studies, however, have also accounted for other biopsychosocial risk factors associated with women's breastfeeding. Research aim: This study aimed to examine how prenatal intimate partner violence affects women's breastfeeding initiation, early cessation, and exclusivity at 6 weeks postpartum, controlling for perinatal health problems, prenatal depression, childhood adverse experiences, and prenatal breastfeeding education...

INTRODUCTION: The development of mania during weaning is an underreported phenomenon that has received little attention in the recent past. Lack of timely diagnosis and effective management can negatively affect not only the mother but also her family. Main issue: I describe the case of a woman who experienced onset of mixed mania during weaning. At that time, she was diagnosed with bipolar I disorder, current episode manic, and a mixed-features specifier. The woman had a history of bipolar II disorder and a family history of postpartum depression and bipolar disorder...

BACKGROUND: Researchers have confirmed that breastfeeding disparities persist and that International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs) play a key role in reducing them. However, there continues to be a limited availability of IBCLCs throughout the United States, with racial minorities facing persistent barriers during the certification process. Research aim: Using a critical race theory framework, the aim was to describe the barriers and supports that IBCLCs experience during the course of their certification...
