Clinical impression suggests that lactation mastitis is associated with inexperienced nursers, improper nursing techniques, stress and fatigue.
A pilot study was conducted to describe the frequency of self-reported breastfeeding practices during the first week post partum among 100 breastfeeding women delivering at a freestanding birthing center or participating in an early discharge program.
Nine cases of lactation mastitis were identified from the survey population and an additional 8 from the target population for the survey.
Seventeen controls matched by delivery date were identified from survey participants.
