Abstract
Objective

To know and deepen in the evaluation, and experience of gypsy women with breastfeeding.

Method

Qualitative study with an interpretative phenomenological approach, through a focus group with the participation of six mothers of gypsy ethnicity, users of the Fuente de San Luis Health Center in the city of Valencia.

Results

The barriers described by these mothers regarding breastfeeding refer to a lack of family support, an association of breastfeeding to sacrifice and to the dependence of the baby to the breast. From the accounts of these mothers it is perceived, a disinterest in breastfeeding and a lack of confidence in their own bilogy, which together with a low participation in maternal education activities, have meant the barriers that have mostly limited and largely hindered breastfeeding in this group of mothers.

Conclusions

It would be desirable to implement improvement actions that would pay more attention to promote, protect and support breastfeeding in this group.

Resumen
Objetivo

Conocer y profundizar en la valoración, experiencia y vivencia de las mujeres de etnia gitana con la lactancia materna.

Método

Estudio cualitativo con un enfoque fenomenológico interpretativo, a través de la realización de un grupo focal en el que participaron 6 madres de etnia gitana usuarias del Centro de Salud de Fuente de San Luis de la ciudad de Valencia.

Resultados

Las barreras descritas por estas madres en cuanto a la lactancia refieren una falta de apoyo familiar, una asociación del amamantamiento al sacrificio y a la dependencia del bebé al pecho. De los relatos de estas madres se percibe, un desinterés por la lactancia y una falta de confianza en su propia biología, que, unido a una escasa participación en las actividades de educación maternal, han supuesto las barreras que mayormente han limitado y dificultado en gran parte la lactancia en este grupo de madres.

Conclusiones

Sería deseable poner en marcha acciones de mejora que prestaran mayor atención en promover, proteger y apoyar la lactancia en este colectivo.
