Abstract

The aim of the study was to study the views and

perceptions of a group of mothers regarding breastfeeding.

The study was done in the professorial unit of the de

Soysa Maternity Hospital (DMH). The study involved

50 mothers. A pre-tested questionnaire was used to get

the information.

In spite of the improvement of attitudes and views

regarding breast feeding, it was found that a

considerable number of mothers still harbor

unsubstantiated views and unhealthy perceptions

regarding breast-milk and breast-feeding.
