A questionnaire that collected general information as well as information related to the intention to give breastfeeding and myths existing about this topic was completed.Results: The prevalence of pregnant women with intention to give breastfeeding was 81%. Midwife appears as the main and best informant. In the multivariate analysis the opinion of the partner and the received information on breastfeeding were factors significantly associated with the intention to breastfeed.Conclusions: It is necessary to promote changes in the training of health personnel involved in giving information to pregnant woman about importance of breastfeeding as well as to develop initiatives involving the partner in the pregnant training session.
