The rate of breastfeeding among immigrant Vietnamese women in Western countries is low compared to those in Vietnam.
To counteract this trend, a language and culture specific education program was developed.
An experimental design was used to test the effectiveness of this program.
The sample consisted of 182 prenatal Vietnamese women.
Data collection included questionnaires and interviews.
Results suggested that the education program had significant effects on knowledge, attitudes, planned and actual behaviour towards breastfeeding.
However, the effect did not sustain until 6 months post-partum.
Implications for nursing practice and further research are discussed.
