Abstract [en]

Mothers’ perception of their relationship with their baby might affect sensitive parenting. This study aimed to explore first time mothers’ feelings for and their relation to the baby associated with how they responded to the "mother to infant relation and feelings (MIRF) scale" as a step in the validation process of the scale. Interviews with ten first-time mothers, three days after birth, were performed, using open questions followed by questions directly from the MIRF scale items. An inductive and deductive approach inspired by the "Think aloud" method guided the study. Results describe main category; New mothers bewilderment and anticipation which contained four categories; Natural and great but mixed, Maternal instinct and kinship, Ability and expectations and Not yet for real. When mothers responded to MIRF scale items they describe talking to their baby which they did not in their open answers. Answering the MIRF scale helped mothers in differentiating between their own mixed feelings of becoming mothers and their relation to and feelings for the baby. The MIRF scale appears valid in reflecting important aspects of mothers’ feelings for and relation to their baby. The MIRF scale could be used in research and when evaluating care routines as well as in dialogue with new mothers to support mother-to-infant interactions.

Abstract [en]

The overall aim was to contribute to the development of optimal quality care in childbearing through exploring how professionals learn to act and how they act in support of women and their partners and what supportive needs women and their partners have during childbearing, as well as how professional support influences parents' experience during childbearing and their relation to the baby. I) Diaries from student midwives (n=11), about offering continuous support during childbirth, analysed with qualitative analysis. II) An observation and interview study during childbirth with midwives (n=7), women (n=7) and their partner (n=7), analysed with hermeneutic text interpretation. III) First-time mothers (n=10) were interviewed three days after birth, as a step in the validation process of the "Mother to Infant Relation and Feelings" (MIRF) scale, analysed with qualitative content analysis. IV) A random longitudinal intervention study including a process-oriented training program for midwives and postnatal nurses. First time mothers with a caesarean or a normal birth (n=395) answered questionnaires at three days, three and nine months postpartum about professional support and their relation to and feelings for the baby, analysed statistically. Result: I) Offering continuous support made students aware of the importance to establish rapport, but needing reassurance could hamper their efforts to establish rapport. Experiencing a lack of confidence made students focus more strongly on their medical skills. II) Which ideology midwives adopted during childbirth influenced if the individual supportive needs of women and their partners were met. III) The MIRF scale appears valid to use in research and in dialogue with new mothers to support mother-to-infant interactions. IV) Trained professionals strengthened mothers' perception of professional support which may buffer negative effects of caesarean birth in relation to the baby. Conclusion: Professional support in childbearing is a challenging act of balance which can strengthen women's sense of ability in meeting the needs of the baby even in the additional challenge of caesarean birth. Training in support and reflection about one's attitudes and ideology in practice improve supportive skills.
