dc.description.abstract This thesis attempted to determine whether there was a relationship between an antepartum increase in knowledge of breastfeeding and women's choice to breastfeed after parturition. A group of women of low social class was given instruction about breastfeeding in three forty-five minute sessions during the last four months of pregnancy. Data, concerning the number of women who chose to breastfeed, were collected from the group that was given the information and from the group that was not given information. The data were analyzed statistically. The Chi Square test was applied to the data to determine whether there was any relationship between the giving of instruction about breastfeeding and the mothers' choices to breastfeed. Though more mothers in the experimental group did choose to breastfeed than in the control group, the relationship between the giving of instruction and the choice to breastfeed was not significant, according to statistical analysis.Ball State UniversityMuncie, IN 47306 en_US
