Abstract

 Background & Objectives: Self – efficacy in breastfeeding is a valuable frame work to anticipate breastfeeding behavior, and shows the mother’s self – reliance and degree of ability to breastfeed her baby. Having high self – efficacy can increase exclusive breastfeeding duration, therefore, this study has been designed and performed to determine the rate of breastfeeding self – efficacy among PREGNANT WOMEN referred to health centers of Ahvaz.Materials & Methods: In this descriptive-correlative study 120 PREGNANT WOMEN who referred to health center of Ahvaz were randomly selected. In last month of pregnancy their self – efficacy scores was measured by Fox & Dennis questionnaire. Data were analyzed by using SPSS/17.Results: Findings of this study showed that the mean score of women's self-efficacy and standard deviation were 104.85 and 15.10 respectively. The results of this research showed significant correlation between age of pregnancy and education of samples with self – efficacy scores, too.Discussion & Conclusion: In spite of proven benefits of breastfeeding and the main role of self – efficacy in choosing baby- feeding method and duration of exclusive breastfeeding, findings of this study indicated that low percentage of samples had high scores of self-efficacy. It seems that compilation of educational program is needed to increase PREGNANT WOMEN’s breastfeeding self – efficacy.
