Interventions to Promote Breastfeeding

Title: Mother's Milk Messaging 
Summary: The objectives for this project are to evaluate a bilingual English-Spanish tailored text messages and online support system to support exclusive and continuous breastfeeding for new mothers--comparing texting alone, texting with an online support group to those with usual care, to determine the cost involved in moderating the online groups and providing bidirectional consultation when needed and to obtain qualitative feedback from a subset of mothers in both intervention groups to determine what was effective, as well as suggestions for improvement of the messaging program.
