Abstract

Objective: To identify the guidelines offered and the respective communication techniques used by Nursing staff for the practice of exclusive breastfeeding, during the establishment of the communication with recent mothers.


Method: Descriptive study with a qualitative approach, between March and December 2012, in a reference Hospital of Fortaleza, with eleven Nursing professionals.


Results: Most Nursing professionals of the study focused their guidelines on the importance of maintaining the practice of exclusive breastfeeding up to the first six months of the child's life, highlighting the benefits for the baby, mom and the family, and in the clinical management of breastfeeding.


Conclusions: By using the techniques of communication, Nursing professionals have demonstrated to be in tune with recent mothers when promoting their participation in the breastfeeding process, instructing them and offering encouragement. However, the social and emotional aspects that permeate the practice of breastfeeding were not mentioned by the Nursing staff.
