Pronurturance was less likely following caesarean section (adjusted Odds Ratio (aOR) 0.07, 95% Confidence Interval (CI) 0.03–0.17). Pronurturance was more likely with a known midwife during labour and birth (aOR 1.89, 95% CI 1.35–2.65). Contributing to the low rate of pronurturance were lack of antenatal skin-to-skin information; babies being wrapped; women wearing clothing; and non-urgent caregiver interruptions including weighing the baby or facilitating the mother to shower. Key Conclusion: Health services must strategically address the institutional processes which delay and/or interrupt skin-to-skin contact and breastfeeding in birth suite and operating theatre settings. Implications for Practice: Midwives and midwifery students providing continuity of carer are best placed to provide pronurturance to mothers and babies. Caregivers should educate women about pronurturance antenatally, and actively support immediate, uninterrupted mother/baby skin-to-skin contact and breastfeeding after birth.]]> Wed 23 Nov 2022 11:50:22 AEDT ]]> Fatherhood Research Bulletin https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:32313 Mon 23 Sep 2019 12:40:43 AEST ]]> Fatherhood Research Symposium II: Theory, Measurement, Policy and Practice https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:32329 Mon 23 Sep 2019 11:19:43 AEST ]]>
