Therefore, the need of professional support around it is observed for mothers during pregnancy and once breastfeeding has begun. The World Health Assembly recognized the potential of digital technologies to improve public health, highlighting that the use of eHealth has transformed health, allowing the delivery of care in people’s homes remotely.


To determine if professional support through eHealth is a strategy that favors the support to mothers who are going through the breastfeeding process and improves their breastfeeding results.


A integrative review was carried out seeking to understand the phenomenon or topic of interest from different perspectives. To carry it out in June 2020, the databases Pubmed, Scopus, CINAHL, ProQuest, ClinicalKey and Science Direct were consulted.


They were organized into two groups: professional support strategies through eHealth to mothers in breastfeeding process and results of eHealth as a tool for professional support to mothers in breastfeeding process.
