Taylor and Hutchings (2012) describe how using women’s video narratives of their lived experience of breastfeeding within midwifery education impacted positively on the attitudes of a group of midwives in relation to supporting breastfeeding women.


Findings support the value of using women’s video narratives within higher education, through their power to integrate affective and cognitive learning, and to promote a transformative learning process. This novel approach brings value-added learning benefits by enhancing the potential to improve attitudes towards supporting breastfeeding women and improving clinical practice.
