Introduction: primary Women face many challenges for starting and continuing lactation. Lactation self-efficacy is an important but modified psychological and motivational variable for the continuation of lactation. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of education through cyberspace on lactation in primary women.
Methods: This experimental study was carried out on 65 primary women who referred to Shahrood Pregnancy Planning Centers during their 28-32 pregnancy weeks in 2018. Sampling was done randomly in two groups of test and control. The test group received lactation training program in 7 sessions, 45-60 minutes. The data were collected using a demographic questionnaire and lactation self-efficacy and entered into SPSS V. 21 software, then independent sample, paired sample and covariance tests at the significance level of p<0.05 were analyzed.
Results: The mean and standard deviation of self-efficacy in the pre-intervention group were 49.39 ± 12.97, interventional dimension was 53±12.34 and in the control group before intervention was 45.03 ± 13.95, and the intervention was 41.71 ± 7.79. After intervention, the level of self-efficacy of the experimental group (P = 0.35) was higher than that of the control group (P = 0.24)
Conclusion: According to the results, education through cyberspace can be used as a new and effective method for self-efficacy of lactation in primary women. Therefore, it seems that mothers' education can improve the factors related to lactation self-efficacy and subsequently improve lactation.
