Purpose:

This trial studies how well an informational intervention works in increasing lactation practices by African American women. Giving additional information about breastfeeding and breast cancer risks to African American women may help doctors understand the factors that affect the decision to breast feed and to test whether providing useful information about breastfeeding will change breastfeeding behavior.


Study summary:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. Develop appropriate intervention strategies about the ?breastfeeding-breast cancer connection? appropriate for use by experienced Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Peer Counselors (PCs) to disseminate to African-American mothers through a community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach. II. Assess the comparative cognitive (e.g., knowledge, utility, cost-benefit), affective association (e.g., feelings), socioeconomic, familial and intent/outcome (e.g., breastfeeding) measures pre- and post-intervention to determine effectiveness of the content to impact cognitive and feeling measures and increase breastfeeding in young African-American mothers compared to an existing counseling program. OUTLINE: Participants are assigned to 1 of 2 groups. GROUP I: Participants receive standard information about pregnancy and breastfeeding. Participants may also participate in a focus group with their partner/spouse or family members after the baby's birth. GROUP II: Participants receive standard information about pregnancy and breastfeeding as well as information about breastfeeding and breast cancer. Participants may also participate in a focus group with their partner/spouse or family members after the baby's birth. After completion of the information intervention, participants are followed for up to 1 year.
