Parents and their prematurely born child--from experience of cooperation of a psychologist with the clinical department of neonatal pathology and intensive care



Parents and their prematurely born child--from experience of cooperation of a psychologist with the clinical department of neonatal pathology and intensive care



Medycyna Wieku Rozwojowego 4(2 Suppl 3): 119-127



Premature birth and hospitalisation of a child in the first weeks of life may have a potentially adverse effect on the relationship between the parents and the child. The aim of this paper is to describe: 1) emotional reactions of parents of babies born prematurely, 2) parental processes of coping, and 3) psychological intervention in the context of tertiary care hospital ward. The author presents data from relevant literature and her clinical experiences of co-operation with the Clinical Department of Neonatal Pathology and Intensive Care of the National Research Institute of Mother and Child in Warsaw. Parents of premature neonates experience a whole range of emotional reactions and use different ways of coping. Psychological intervention in the post-partum period is aimed at preventing disorders of bonding and attachment.
