Being separated from your newborn infant in the busy NICU environment is counteracting attachment and bonding, resulting in poor breastfeeding outcome. Changes in NICU design, promotion of a care culture towards more family integrated care, teaching staff on the benefits of breastfeeding and measuring breastfeeding outcomes have been important aspects in breastfeeding promotion in our NICU

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Effects of separation of the newborn infant from his mother will affect attachment/bonding, maternal and infant health
Objective 2: Factors facilitating closeness between newborn infant and his mother
Objective 3: How to support breastfeeding in the NICU context
