Abstract

The Kangaroo Method is a model that aims at humanized care, bringing together intervention strategies at a biopsychosocial level that has an environment that favors neonatal care. This method promotes the participation of parents and family in neonatal care. One of the points of the strategies is the skin-to-skin contact, which starts early and grows from the touch, evolving to the kangaroo position. The objective of this work is to discuss how the strengthening of the maternal-infant bond through the kangaroo method in neonatal intensive care units happens. The main result of the research is the demonstration that skin-to-skin contact between mother and child allows the development of a synchronized relationship, which generates moments of bonding and attachment, even in the complex environment of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. It was concluded that the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit acts as a stressful environment for parents and newborns, and that it interferes with the establishment of the mother-infant bond. In this sense, it is crucial that health professionals incorporate the family in the care of newborns, and enable the realization of the Kangaroo Method, where through skin-to-skin contact, there is the strengthening and promotion of the affective bond between the mother-child binomial.
