Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Parental involvement in the care of preterm infants in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) is common, but little is known about the effect on stress responses in mothers and infants.AIMS:To evaluate the effect of family-centered care on salivary cortisol reactivity in mothers and preterm infants and the correlation between the mothers’ and the preterm infants’ salivary cortisol levels.METHODS:This study is part of a randomized controlled trial conducted at two level-II NICUs, including Family Care (FC), where parents were able to stay 24 hours/day from admission to discharge, and Standard Care (SC). To investigate the cortisol response, saliva was collected from 289 preterm infants and their mothers before and after a diaper change at the time of discharge.RESULTS:No significant differences were found between the two groups in salivary cortisol reactivity, either in mothers or in infants. The results revealed a correlation between preterm infants’ and their mothers’ baseline and response cortisol in the FC group: r=0.31 (p=0.001) and r=0.24 (p=0.01), respectively. Such correlation was not observed in the SC group: r=0.14 (p=0.14) and r=0.18 (p=0.07), respectively.CONCLUSIONS: Family-centered care had no effect on salivary cortisol reactivity during diaper change. However, sharing the same environment may increase the concordance between preterm infants’ and their mothers’ salivary cortisol levels.
