A prenatal breastfeeding workshop developed for primiparous women was specifically designed to increase a woman's breastfeeding self-efficacy in the early postpartum period. Research has shown that breastfeeding self-efficacy, defined as a woman's confidence in her ability to breastfeed, is positively related to breastfeeding success. Teaching strategies, based on Bandura's Self-Efficacy Theory and adult learning principles, were incorporated in the workshop design. JOGNN, 35, 349-357; 2006. DOI: 10.1111/J.1552-6909.2006.00053.x
