About

Using breast stimulating techniques (skin-to-skin contact, relaxation exercises, breast massage, nipple stimulation, hot application, etc.) stimulates the secretion of milk and increases its amount. This study aimed to determine the effect of care based on the lactation management model offered to mothers whose babies are in the neonatal intensive care unit, on the amount of breast milk and duration of breastfeeding.

Full description

Support of prolactin and oxytocin hormones is needed for adequate production and secretion of breast milk. Many factors affect the levels of oxytocin and prolactin in the blood, such as the health status of the mother and the baby after birth, their separation for a while, nutrition, light, stress, fear, and lack of social support. Using breast stimulating techniques (skin-to-skin contact, relaxation exercises, breast massage, nipple stimulation, hot application, etc.) stimulates the secretion of milk and increases its amount. This study aimed to determine the effect of care based on the lactation management model offered to mothers whose babies are in the neonatal intensive care unit, on the amount of breast milk and duration of breastfeeding.
