  • Descrição: to explore ways in which parents experience support from health professionals in the early postpartum period and understand how parenting support is related to management, informational, and relational continuity. a qualitative study consisting of focus group interviews followed by deductive content analysis. a large city in Sweden; 18 women and 16 men. study participants reported that parenting support occurs by providing consistent advice; indicating who to ask when care questions arise; enabling access to the care system when needs surface; providing sufficient information about self-management for mother or baby; involving parents in discharge planning; distributing information that empowers parents; enabling team/clinical care consistency; and appointing persons in the care system who can foster parents׳ feelings of trust – in short: by enabling management, informational, and relational continuity. care continuity experiences lead to perceived parenting support in the early postpartum period. Effective health care organisations within the postpartum care system must embody these types of continuity: management, informational, and relational. There is a need for researchers to design tools for measuring continuity and for policymakers to enable coherence and co-ordination among professionals. identify parents׳ needs so that health professionals can plan for parents׳ first few weeks at home and ensure that parents get access to appropriate care.
