Challenges of Health Care Providers: Father's Role in Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding mothers require a lot of support in initiating and maintaining breastfeeding. Many researchers have confirmed that breastfeeding practices have physiological, psychosocial, economic and environmental advantages for children. This study is expected to benefit the health provider to support, promote, and protect breastfeeding with regards to challenges they experience while caring for their client. Literature indicates positive associations of breastfeeding practices with child health. Those babies who receive exclusive breastfeeding and optimum feeding are less likely suffer from various health problems. This study will also utilize qualitative method as an inquiry. The focus group provided an avenue to health care providers to share their awareness with regards to breastfeeding, their perspectives on the father's role and the challenges that they are facing in promoting, protecting and supporting breastfeeding.
