Postpartum Mothers' Preferences for Nighttime Care of the Neonate
Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic & Neonatal Nursing
This study, conducted in response to issues raised during implementation of a dyad care delivery system, investigated preferences of postpartum mothers for nighttime care of the neonate. For dyad as well as traditional care subjects, the availability of individual care options emerged as a theme in both personal preference and preference based on available hospital accommodation. Significant differences existed between dyad and traditional care subjects on second choices for nighttime care and on environmental variables.
