Little is known about learning/adherence after different baby massage teaching strategies. We compared the learning/adherence after two strategies.
Design and Methods
Twenty mothers from the group manual-course (GMC) and 20 from the group manual-orientations (GMO) received a booklet. GMC participated in a course during the third trimester. GMO received verbal instructions during the postpartum hospital stay. Multiple-choice and practical tests assessed learning (GMC: performing strokes on a doll; GMO: on the baby). Adherence was measured 3 months after childbirth.
No differences were found between the groups in learning/adherence.
Both teaching strategies showed similar and positive results.
