Summary In this interpretive study, six women who have had some difficulty with breastfeeding, tell of their experiences of breastfeeding following childbirth. These stories are discussed using the feminist poststructuralist theory of discourse analysis, as presented by Weedon (1987). The women's stories reveal a wide range of experiences, and conflicting discourses, many of which relate to issues of power and control surrounding breastfeeding.
