This project aims to format a model of intervention with the families of premature babies that were referred to Casa do Bebê (Baby House), in which mothers will participate in workshops to understand their child’s needs and achievements. The children’s development will be followed for 12 months.
How does your innovation work?
While staying at the Casa do Bebê, each mother will participate in at least two workshops to understand their child’s needs and to build a portfolio on their baby´s achievements, their wishes and expectations, in order to empower parents to best care for their infants at home. The innovation aims to strengthen the emotional bond with parents, reduce parental stress and stimulate caretaking practices that promote the overall development of premature children.
SEE LESS
In addition to the immediate health threats that preterm infants face, many premature infants in Brazil grow up exposed to the adversities associated with unfavourable socio-economic situations. The lack of a systematic assessment of child development, or specialized monitoring and support for premature infants after hospital discharge, may create adverse effects for these children in the short, medium and long term.
