Developing a prenatal breastfeeding workshop to support maternal breastfeeding self-efficacy.

Author information

  • 1University of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.


A prenatal breastfeeding workshop developed for primiparous women was specifically designed to increase a woman's breastfeeding self-efficacy in the early postpartum period. Research has shown that breastfeeding self-efficacy, defined as a woman's confidence in her ability to breastfeed, is positively related to breastfeeding success. Teaching strategies, based on Bandura's Self-Efficacy Theory and adult learning principles, were incorporated in the workshop design.
