Abstract

The birth and subsequent hospitalization of very low birth weight premature infants can be a psychological shock for parents which may disturb further relationships between infant and parents. The parents' memories from the birth period of 94 very low birthweight premature infants (< 32 weeks of gestational age) have been analyzed by way of an interview. This study has shown the painful aspect of the birth and of the parents' first meeting with the infant. However, despite these first difficulties, the relationship normally improves with time.
