Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: The aim of the present study was to evaluate exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) rates and breastfeeding duration in adolescent Turkish mothers after term-uncomplicated deliveries.
Material and Methods: The study comprised 803 uncomplicated, nulliparous women, who had a single pregnancy and delivered at term gestational age. After excluding any maternal and fetal factors that affected early breastfeeding initiation, 674 nulliparous pregnant women were divided into three groups as follows: adolescents 16–17 years old, adolescents 18–19 years old, and non-adolescents 20–24 years old. The primary outcome of the study was defined as EBF of the infant, especially during the first 6 months of life.
Results: Gestational age at delivery, birth weight, newborn gender, rate of induced labor, and rate of vaginal deliveries were similar among the groups. We found that 22.5% (14/62) of patients in the 16- to 17-year group, 41.8% (72/172) in 18- to 19-year group, and 72.9% (321/440) in the 20- to 24-year group had EBF during the first 6 months of their baby’s life. The rate of EBF during the first 6 months was significantly less in the 16- to 17-year and 18- to 19-year groups compared to that in the 20- to 24-year group (p0.001). The mean breastfeeding duration was 6.7±1.4months in the 16- to 17-year group, 9.5±2.2 months in the 18-to 19-year group, and 15.2±3.2 months in the 20-to 24-year group. Mean breastfeeding duration was significantly less in the 16-to 17-year and 18- to 19-year groups than in the 20- to 24-year group (p0.001).
Conclusion: Our results indicated that adolescent pregnancy in Turkish populations is an important risk factor affecting both EBF during the first 6 months of life and breastfeeding duration.

Keywords: Adolescent pregnancy; breastfeeding duration; exclusive breastfeeding; Turkish population
