NICU professionals are well aware of the role we play in supporting the developing preterm infant, but did you know that we also play a role in supporting the developing mother?

This presentation will discuss the psychological processes involved in the transition from woman to pregnant woman to mother, as well as the potential impact of preterm delivery on maternal role attainment.  Strategies to guide, encourage and affirm a new mother in the NICU will also be presented.

Learning Objectives:

  • 1

    Outline at least two psychological processes experienced by pregnant women as they transition to motherhood

  • 2

    List several ways in which preterm birth and the NICU environment can hamper attachment

  • 3

    Describe one or more nursing care strategies that may promote maternal role attainment
