The article is devoted to the problem of developing the breastfeeding dominant in pregnant women. A cycle of classes has been deve-loped, which includes issues of nutrition during pregnancy, lactation, breastfeeding, and a number of other issues related to the
development, care, nutrition and upbringing of a child in the first year of life. The prevalence and duration of breastfeeding is a controlled process and is determined, on the one hand, by the pregnant woman’s psychological readiness for motherhood and breastfeeding, and on the other, by support from the family and health workers, for whom the main task is to create optimal conditions for starting lactation and support it during the first years of a child’s life. It is also necessary to take into account the role of socio-economic factors, which are of great importance for ensuring full lactation and prolonged breastfeeding.
