Abstract
The hormone prolactin and oxytocin, are also related to blood pressure regulation and the risk of hypertension for women who are breastfeeding. The lactation has been associated with an increased risk for incident hypertension, but the effect of duration breastfeeding and exclusive breastfeeding is unknown. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship of duration of breastfeeding with the incidence of hypertension in Primary Health Care, Ambon City. This research is a quantitative study using a cross sectional design with a correlation description approach. The measuring instrument used was a questionnaire. The population in the study were respondents aged 36-65 years, mothers who had a history of breastfeeding. Sampling using a purposive sampling technique. The number of samples was 90 respondents. Data analysis using Kendall’s Tau C test and Kendall’s Tau B. The results showed that there was a significant relationship between age (p = 0.001), education (p = 0.029), the duration of breastfeeding (p = 0.032) with the incidence of hypertension. There was no relationship between work (p = 0.138), parity (p = 0.744) with the incidence of maternal hypertension.
