Intentions : «The aim of this study was to examine and compare predictors of exclusive breastfeeding at 16 weeks post-partum among migrant and Canadian-born women.» (p. 529)
Échantillon/Matériau : «[B]etween February 2006 and May 2009, a cohort of women and their infants were recruited on the post-partum units of 12 hospitals serving the highest percentage of asylum-seekers in cities receiving the greatest number of refugees to Canada (Toronto, 32.8%; Montreal, 21%; Vancouver, 7.7%).» (p. 530) L’échantillon est compose de 810 femmes immigrantes canadiennes et de 374 femmes nées au Canada.
Instruments : Questionnaire
Type de traitement des données : Analyse statistique
«Women in the migrant subgroups were significantly less likely to be breastfeeding exclusively at 16 weeks post-partum in comparison to women in the Canadian-born group. Among migrant women, refugee women had the lowest exclusive breastfeeding rates, which were approximately 20% lower than asylum-seekers and non-refugee immigrant women. Those who emigrated from the UNWorld Region of Africa had the lowest breastfeeding exclusivity rates, which were approximately 7% lower than those who emigrated from Asia/Oceania and Latin America.» (p. 534) «Our results suggest that not exclusively breastfeeding at 1 week post-partum was the only similar risk factor for not exclusively breastfeeding at 16 weeks among both migrant and Canadian-born women.» (p. 540)
