Accelerating Best Practices in Peer Support Around the World

Systematic Review of Peer Support and Breastfeeding

Kaunonen and colleagues completed a systematic review to describe peer support interventions in Europe, North America, Australia or New Zealand supporting breastfeeding during pregnancy and the postnatal period. Individual support and education were most frequently used during pregnancy, hospitalization and the postnatal period.  The authors concluded that only continuous breastfeeding support produces effective results and the role of peer support is most important during the postnatal period.
