Abstract

The W.H.O. recommends the partner’s presence during childbirth. Objective: To describe professional staff experiences related to the partner’s presence during childbirth. Methodology: Research was carried in a hospital in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil, between January and June 2001. Twenty four professionals (obstetricians,   neonatologists,  midwifery nurses and ancillary nurses) were interviewed. Findings: The presence of the partner provoked  positive reflexes on several aspects of childbirth care. The partner’s inclusion in childbirth requires systematic preparation and should be framed in an integral project of care humanization. The professionals identified other demands following the partner’s involvement in childbirth care. Conclusions: The institution and the professionals require previous preparation when partners will take part in childbirth care as part of an integral childbirth care humanization proposal
