Le devenir père de nouveau-né prématuré : Analyse de trois études de cas

Abstract : The aim of this study is to analyze the narratives of fathers of premature infants in order to explore their life experience and the way that fathers determine their role during the time they spend in a neonatal intensive care unit. A semi-structrured interview is used based on the Clinical Interview for Parents of High-Risk Infants (Meyer, Zeanah, Boukydis, and Lester 1993) and a thematic analysis is proposed. The analysis of three case studies describes the different paternal styles adopted during the hospitalization of their partner and child. Three styles were identified : the father in a maternal position, the father-messenger, and the father as a partner of the mother. Skin-to-skin contact allows the father to develop an initial bond with his child and defines his role as a father. Our results highlight the importance of paternal presence in situations of prematurity and also allow us to recommend intervention solutions.
