OBJECTIVE: to explore midwives׳ experiences and perceptions of skin-to-skin contact between mothers and their healthy full-term infants immediately and during the first day after caesarean section.
DESIGN: qualitative interviews with semi-structured questions.
SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: eight midwives at three different hospitals in Stockholm participated in the study. All participants provided care for mothers and their newborn infants after caesarean birth.
ANALYSIS: transcribed material was analysed and interpreted using qualitative content analysis. The analysis yielded the theme ‘fighting an uphill battle’.
FINDINGS: skin-to-skin contact was considered to be important, and something that midwives strove to implement as a natural element of postnatal care.
