Abstract [en]

The aim was to describe the meaning of the father’s lived experiences when taking care of his infant as the primary caregiver during the first hours after birth, when the infant was apart from the mother due to the mother’s postoperative care. Fifteen fathers were interviewed between 8 days to 6 weeks after birth. The results describe a movement towards father-child togetherness characterized by an immediate and gradual change within the father as he undertakes increasing responsibility while getting to know his child. The results can be reflected upon in antenatal classes in order to integrate the father’s important role in the care of his infant, in a situation where the mother-infant dyad has been interrupted.
