Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Key Points:1. Psychological theories can help explain why some women are more likely to start and continue breastfeeding than others. 2. Motivational theory applied to breastfeeding offers new knowledge about the motivational role of value and expectancy for success. 3. Understanding breastfeeding persistence from the perspective of personal attributions adds meaning to the socio-demographic and behavioural trends that are commonly associated with breastfeeding cessation.4. When providing women-centred care it is important for breastfeeding practitioners and educators to fully understand what goals women are aiming to fulfil when they commence breastfeeding.
