Webinar: A Qualitative study of Social, Cultural, and Historical Influences on Some African American Women’s Infant-Feeding Practices

African Americans have the lowest breastfeeding rate of any race. Despite widespread agreement that breastfeeding is optimal nutrition and essential for long-term health benefits there is a breastfeeding disparity along racial/ ethnic lines. Evidence suggests that women do not decide on an infant feeding methods alone. There are social barriers, family traditions/cultural and socio-historical influences that affect infant feeding decisions for some African American mothers. The purpose of this presentation is to identify and describe cultural/socio-historical factors influencing breastfeeding beliefs and behaviors among contemporary African American women. Socio-historical factors include events, experiences and other phenomena that have been socially, generationally, and culturally passed down and integrated into families and communities that influence health beliefs and health behaviors.
