Abstract/Results:
RESULTS:
This study aimed to evaluate an intervention program with parents of premature infants who were hospitalized at a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The intervention program included daily tactile-kinesthetic stimulation, separately provided by the mother and the father to the infant during the hospitalization period and at home for 12 months. Selected outcome indicators for this evaluation were the infant’s health and well-being (increasing weight and body mass index and reduction of hospitalization time) and psychomotor development. The reduction of the parents’ psychological distress, as well as the promotion of the quality of their involvement, care, and interaction provided to the infant were also goals and positive outcomes of this intervention program.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND:
Adolescent mothers and their infants are at risk for poor health and developmental outcomes. Massage is a relatively simple strategy to improve mother’s sensibility to the infant’s cues.
AIM:
The aim of the study was to analyse how massage can improve infant’s sleeping habits and reduce their teenage mothers’ psychopathological symptoms.
METHODS:
A sample of 30 adolescent mothers and their infants were recruited at the Júlio Dinis Maternity Hospital (Porto, Portugal) just
after delivery. A socio-demographic Questionnaire was completed at the time. Premature infants (gestational age < 37 weeks or weight < 2.500) and infant with chronic illness (impeditive of regular sleep habits), as well as mothers with twins, and mothers that do not know how to read and write in Portuguese were excluded from the study. Two weeks after recruitment, the Children’s Sleep Habit Questionnaire (Owens et al., 2000), the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (Spielberg et al., 1970) and the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (Cox et al;) was administrated to the mothers (pre-test). A Massage Instruction Manual and a Massage Booklet were also provided. The massage was taught to an experimental group of 15 mothers. At 3 months postpartum the mothers completed again the Sleep Chronogram, the CSHQ, STAI and EPDS.
RESULTS:
Infant’s receiving massage by their mothers show better sleep patterns and better sleep habits, and the mothers who provided the massage show less anxiety and less depression at 3 months postpartum.
CONCLUSION:
Adolescent mothers providing massage to their 0 to 3 months-old infants present less postpartum anxiety and depression and their infants seem to sleep better.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Our aim was to study the impact of a massage protocol on the symptomatology and involvement of mothers and fathers with their preterm offspring admitted in the NICU. The specific goal was to study how the massage interfered in this relationship, as well as with other type of symptomatology, such as depression, anxiety.
We decided to study this subject because in 2005 6,55% (7174) were born with less than 37 weeks and 0,88% (966) with less than 31 weeks; 7,5% (8209) weighed less than 2500g and 0,9% (1012) less than 1550g (INE, 2008), all of which are admitted to the NICU.
PARTICIPANTS:
20 mothers and 20 fathers that had a preterm baby with less than 34 weeks and/or 1500g admitted to Júlio Dinis Maternity, Oporto Hospital Centre between July 2007 and December 2008.
INSTRUMENTS:
-EPDS - Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale
-STAI - Stait Trait Anxiety Inventory
-Bonding
PROCEDURE:
We assessed them in two stages: in the NICU they were asked for informed consent and given various questionnaires to answer – EPDS, STAI, and Bonding.
A month later they were assessed again, using the same instruments from stage one.
RESULTS:
Taking this into consideration that our sample is not yet complete, the gender difference between subjects is not significant [F(3,9)=1,34;p=0,31] and either is the temporal variation between both moments [F(3,9)=1,65;p=0,23]. The interaction between times and gender was also not significant [F(3,9)=1,56;p=0,25], which shows that both men and women behave similarly.
Between the first and second moment there were no significant differences in the STAI [F(1)=1,17;p=0,30], the EPDS [F(1)=3,14;p=0,10], the Bonding [F(1)=2,27;p=0,15] and the RQ [F(1)=3,24;p=0,09]. This also applies to the differences between gender, where STAI [F(1)=1,68;p=0,22], EPDS [F(1)=2,62;p=0,13], Bonding [F(1)=3,10;p=0,10] and RQ [F(1)=1,92;p=0,19] not significant.
CONCLUSION:
Our general our hypothesis was confirmed – over time the depressive and anxious symptoms decrease, although not significantly for now.
The BONDING shows interesting results, while in the women it decreases over time, in the men it increases. This can be explained because of the time the baby in admitted in the NICU.

Term and pre-term parents - Why are they different?
Publication year: 2010

http://icis2010.isisweb.org/schedule/searchview2.cfm?author=10512
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Our aim was to study the differences between preterm and term parents, considering their symptomatology, such as anxiety and depression, as well as their relationship with their newborn and their spouse.
SAMPLE:
60 mothers of pre-term babies were recruited at the Neonatal Care Unit in a Maternity Hospital in Oporto, Portugal. Later, these mothers were paired with mothers of 60 term babies, recruited in the same hospital after delivery, considering their level of education and their baby’s sex as pairing variables. The fathers were also included in the study (n=107).
INSTRUMENTS:
-EPDS - Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale
-STAI - Stait Trait Anxiety Inventory
-Bonding
-Relationship Questionnaire
PROCEDURE:
Both groups were assessed when the baby was clinically stable and able their parents able to participate and answer the questionnaires included in this study. The sample was recruited during July 2007 and July 2008.
RESULTS:
Our purpose was to assess the differences between the pre-term and term group regarding STAI, EPDS and RQ sub-scales. There are significant differences in the STAI [F(3,985) = 37,15 and 34,24, p = .047] and the negative sub-scale of the RQ [F(4,054) = 1,96 and 2,03, p = .045].
We can also observe that there are statistical differences in the STAI [F(9,537) = 37,70 and 33,44, p = .002] and EPDS [F(17,133] = 6,79 and 4,42, p = .000] when mothers and fathers are compared. However, this does happen with the RQ in the positive [F(0,663) = 3,62 and 2,05, p = .42] and negative sub-scale [F(0,300] = 2,01 and 2,05, p = .58]
The second aim was to see if there were differences between the mothers in the pre-term and the term group as well as the fathers. Comparing the mothers, there are significant differences in the STAI [F(5,856] = 40,08 and 35,19, p = 0,017] and EPDS [F(3,789) = 5,96 and 7,58, p = 0,054). There were on the other hand no significant differences regarding the positive [F(0,205) = 3,64 and 3,60, p = .651] and negative [F(1,751) = 1,95 ad 2,08, p = .188] sub-scale of the RQ.
However, there were no statistically significant differences in any of the father’s variables, showing that they behave alike whether they are in the pre-term or term group.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
To study the impact of premature infant massage on the mother and father’s anxiety and depression symptoms and marital relationship, as well as in their emotional involvement with the infant.
PARTICIPANTS:
30 mothers and 30 fathers that had a preterm baby with less than 34 weeks and/or 1500g admitted to a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) (Oporto Hospital Centre. Portugal) between July 2007 and December 2008 were enroll on an infant massage protocol.
INSTRUMENTS:
Self-measure questionnaires were used to assess mother and father depression (EPDS, Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale), anxiety (STAI, Stait Trait Anxiety Inventory), couple relationship (RQ, Relationship Questionnaire), and emotional involvement (BS, Bonding Scale) with the infant.
PROCEDURES:
Mother and fathers were assessed in two stages: in the NICU they were asked for informed consent and self-measure questionnaires (pre-test), 1 month later (pos-test) they were assessed using the same instruments from stage one. In between the mother and father were taught how to massage, and provide massage to their infant once a day in the NICU and later at home.
RESULTS:
No significant differences were found between measuring time points [F(3,9)=1,65;p=0,23]. No significant differences were found between pre and post-test measurement of mother/father’s anxiety [F(1 =1,17;p=0,30], depression [F(1)=3,14;p=0,10], couple relationship [F(1)=3,24;p=0,09], and emotional involvement with the infant [F(1)=2,27;p=0,15]. No significant differences were found between gender [F(3,9)=1,34;p=0,31]. This also applies to gender differences in anxiety [F(1)=1,68;p=0,22], depression [F(1)=2,62;p=0,13], couple relationship [F(1)=1,92;p=0,19], and emotional involvement with the infant [F(1)=3,10;p=0,10]. The interaction between measuring time points and gender was also not significant [F(3,9 =1,56;p=0,25].
CONCLUSION:
Although not significantly at this stage, results regarding mothers’ anxiety and depression (but not results regarding mothers’ couple relationship and involvement with the infant) and results regarding fathers’ emotional involvement with the infant (but not results regarding fathers’ anxiety, depression and couple relationship) pointing to our general hypothesis – over time the depressive and anxious symptoms decrease in mothers and the emotional involvement with the infant increase in fathers who provide massage to their premature infant. Generally men and women behave similarly, but while mother emotional involvement with the infant decrease over time, in the father it increases.
