The mothers were either in the postnatal ward or in the newborn unit.
The interview was on various aspects of breast feeding but with the main goal of establishing whether they received health education on breast feeding during the visits to ANC. 53.06% had antenatal education on breastfeeding during these visits while 46.94% did not. 69.44% attended ANC at a hospital, 24.3% attended at health centre and 6.25% attended a dispensary.
