    Experiences of parenthood and parental support during the child's first year2004Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall aim of this licentiate thesis was to describe parents' experiences of parenthood, mothers' experiences of being separated from their newborns, and also mothers' experiences of an intervention to provide parental support. Data were collected through a review of the literature (I) and through tape-recorded narrative interviews with mothers (II, III). The data were analysed using a qualitative thematic content analysis (I, III) and a phenomenological hermeneutic interpretation (II) respectively. Being a parent during the child's first year was experienced as overwhelming. Mothers felt satisfaction and confidence, but also strain of various kinds. The sources of this strain lay in having the principal responsibility for the child, struggling with having limited time for oneself, and being tired and drained of energy. In addition to being confident as a father and as a partner, men also felt that living up to the new demands was a strain, and that being prevented from establishing a closeness to the child was hurtful. Men saw themselves as the family protector and provider. Mothers' narratives about their separation from their newborn during their first week of life, as a result of transfer to a neonatal intensive-care unit, revealed that their experiences had caused them emotional strain and anxiety accompanied by pain and grief, but also a feeling of closeness and care. A feeling of being an outsider was expressed as loss, grief and distress. The mothers felt powerless when prevented from taking responsibility for their newborn, and worried and afraid that something serious was going to happen. Feelings of love, gratitude, intense closeness, and the joy inspired by their newborn occurred in those moments when the mothers had their children with them. Mothers' experiences of receiving parental support through the medium of electronic encounters showed that they felt that sharing experiences with others was supportive and that having new friends reduced their feeling of loneliness. The technology was experienced as fun and exciting, but the mothers were disturbed by noise problems and gradually by the presence of the infant. The opportunity to meet other mothers in the same situation via electronic encounters, and to share the experiences of being a mother seemed to facilitate everyday life for these mothers. This study can be understood as a description of the process of becoming a mother and of the concepts of transition and confirmation.

    Mothers' experience of being separated from their newborns2002In: Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic and Neonatal Nursing, ISSN 0884-2175, E-ISSN 1552-6909, Vol. 31, no 3, p. 275-82Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVE: To elucidate mothers' experiences related to separation from their newborns during their 1st week of life, when the newborns had been transferred to a neonatal intensive-care unit (NICU). DESIGN: A phenomenologic-hermeneutic approach. Tape-recorded narrative interviews were conducted 1 to 2 months postpartum in the participants' homes. The mothers were asked to describe and reflect upon their experiences during the time when they were separated from their children. PARTICIPANTS: Eight women whose full-term newborns had been treated in the NICU for between 2 and 10 days and then declared healthy and sent home. RESULTS: The women's narratives revealed that their experiences had caused them emotional strain and anxiety. From the analysis, three themes emerged: Being an outsider was based on feelings of despair, powerlessness, homelessness, and disappointment. Lack of control included emotional instability, threat, guilt, and insecurity. The theme of caring included trust, love, anxiety, relief, closeness, and explanations. The experiences were related to the staff, the child, the environment, the mother herself, the child's father, and other mothers. CONCLUSIONS: Separating a mother and her newborn during the 1st week of the child's life involves much emotional strain for the mother, even though the newborn is not seriously ill.

    Electronic encounters: fathers' experiences of parental support2008In: Journal of Telemedicine and Telecare, ISSN 1357-633X, E-ISSN 1758-1109, Vol. 14, no 2, p. 71-74Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A group of fathers met regularly during their child's first year through an e-meeting portal. (This was part of a larger study which was designed to describe mothers' and fathers' experiences of an intervention to provide parental support.) The technology allowed meetings by web-based videoconferencing, both one-to-one and in groups. The leader of the electronic encounters was a man with comprehensive experience in leading parental support groups with fathers. The fathers were interviewed using a narrative approach twice, once midway through the study and once at the end. Qualitative content analysis was applied to the interview data and three categories were identified: being unfamiliar and insecure talking about fatherhood, sharing experiences and being confirmed, and being supported and limited by the electronic encounters. Most fruitful and rewarding in the meetings was the fathers sharing other fathers' experiences. It was important to talk about things they did not talk to others about. Some fathers expressed a wish for more structure in the meetings. The fathers in this study expressed a wish to meet other fathers in a support group during the whole childhood period.

    Parental support: mothers' experience of electronic encounters2006In: Journal of Telemedicine and Telecare, ISSN 1357-633X, E-ISSN 1758-1109, Vol. 12, no 4, p. 194-7Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Five mothers with normal pregnancies and healthy children met regularly during the infants' first year through an e-meeting portal. The technology made it possible to meet using realtime videoconferencing through the Web, both one to one and in groups. An experienced child-health nurse was the leader of the group. The intervention data included interviews and diary notes. Personal tape-recorded narrative interviews were conducted with the mothers, one midway through the study and one at the end. Qualitative content analysis was applied to the data and two major categories were identified: feeling support through confirmation and solidarity, and the technology presents possibilities and limitations. The mothers felt that sharing experiences with others was supportive and that having new friends reduced their feeling of loneliness. The mothers discussed the technology as fun and exciting. However, they were disturbed by sound problems and the realities of caring for an infant. The opportunity to meet other mothers in the same situation via electronic encounters and to share experiences of being a mother facilitated everyday life for these mothers.

    Parenthood experiences during the child's first year2004In: Journal of Advanced Nursing, ISSN 0309-2402, E-ISSN 1365-2648, Vol. 46, no 3, p. 319-30Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background. Raising a child is probably the most challenging responsibility faced by a new parent. The first year is the basis of the child's development and is significant for growth and development. Knowledge and understanding of parents' experiences are especially important for child health nurses, whose role is to support parents in their parenthood. Aim. The aim of this review was to describe mothers' and fathers' experiences of parenthood during the child's first year. Method. A literature search covering 1992-2002 was carried out using the terms parenthood, parenting, first year, infancy and experience. Of the 88 articles retrieved, 33 articles (both qualitative and quantitative) met the inclusion criteria and corresponded to the aim of this review. The data were analysed by thematic content analysis. Findings. Being a parent during the child's first year was experienced as overwhelming. The findings were described from two perspectives, namely mothers' and fathers' perspectives, since all the included studies considered mothers' and fathers' experiences separately. The following categories were identified concerning mothers: being satisfied and confident as a mother, being primarily responsible for the child is overwhelming and causes strain, struggling with the limited time available for oneself, and being fatigued and drained. The following categories were found for fathers: being confident as a father and as a partner, living up to the new demands causes strain, being prevented from achieving closeness to the child is hurtful, and being the protector and the provider of the family. The unifying theme for these categories was 'living in a new and overwhelming world'. Conclusion. There is a need for nurse interventions aimed at minimizing parents' experiences of strain. A suggested intervention is to find a method whereby child health nurses' support would lead to parents becoming empowered in their parenthood

    Projekt: Upplevelse av föräldraskap och föräldrastöd under barnet första år2010Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Projektets övergripande syfteSyftet är att beskriva föräldrars erfarenheter av föräldraskap, mödrars upplevelser av att vara separerade från sina nyfödda barn och hur föräldrar upplever en intervention med föräldrastöd via elektroniska möten under barnet första levnadsår.    Kort beskrivning av projektet  I projektet studeras hur föräldrar (både förstagångs- och flergångsföräldrar) upplevde föräldraskapet under barnets första år. Analys av publicerade vetenskapliga artiklar mellan åren 1992-2002 har genomförts. Dessutom har åtta nyblivna mödrar, till fullgångna barn som vårdats på en neonatalavdelning intervjuats om sina upplevelser av att vara separerade från sina nyfödda barn. Intervjutexten har analyserats med en fenomenologisk hermeneutisk metod. En intervention med föräldrastöd via elektroniska möten under barnets första levnadsår har genomförts som ett komplement till ordinarie barnhälsovård. De mammor och pappor som deltog i interventionen har intervjuats var för sig vid två tillfällen.
