Use of a prediction scoring rule to identify women in need of breastfeeding support and target intervention accordingly

This could involve the development of a prediction score tool (based on findings of a previous study) which was completed by women during pregnancy.  Women could be identified who are ‘at risk’ of stopping breastfeeding early and these women could be targeted and offered extra support in the postnatal period

Note: There is no funding availabe for this project. It is only open to students who provide their own funding or who are applying through the Brazilian Science Without Borders Scheme.
