Abstract
PURPOSE
An increase in the breastfeeding rate has been followed by an increase in the number of mothers seeking help in relactation. We investigated the factors related to successful relactation by assessing the impact of medications, supplementer, consultations, and family support.
METHODS
A retrospective review of the medical records and telephone survey of mothers who had visited the relactation clinic were conducted from January 2004 to April 2007.
RESULTS
Data from 84 mothers were analyzed to identify the factors associated with success in relactation. Seventy-five percent of the mothers succeeded in obtaining exclusive breastfeeding. Success in relactation was associated with informed referral from medical personnel, the use of galactogogues, and family support.
CONCLUSION
This study provides new and noteworthy insights concerning relactation. This highlights the need to inform the mothers about the data of relactation, to use galactogogues, and to have their families involved for psychological support and endurance during visits to the relactation clinic.
