Promoting parenting by keeping new families together from birth through dismissal.

Abstract

Many new parents enter parenting ill-prepared to care for their newborn. Nurses promote optimal parenting by facilitating parent-newborn contact immediately after birth and sustaining continual contact during the brief hospitalization. By serving as positive role models, continually assessing, teaching, and reevaluating the parental knowledge base and care, nurses prepare parents for the challenging role of parenting.
