Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 83 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: Effects of Father-Neonate Skin-to-Skin Contact on Attachment: A Randomised Controlled Trial
Study Start Date : December 2012
Actual Primary Completion Date : November 2013
Actual Study Completion Date : December 2013

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: skin-to-skin contact (SSC)
Experimental: a daily skin-to-skin contact (SSC) at least 15 minutes in length
Other: skin to skin contact
The researchers facilitated initial SSC between intervention-group participants and their infants within 24 hours of birthing under conditions that did not adversely affect spontaneous mother-infant SSC nor interfere with the early initiation of breastfeeding. Because it is standard practice to discharge vaginal-birth mothers on the third postpartum day, this study implemented the intervention during the first three postpartum days for both vaginal and cesarean birth cases.

No Intervention: Control: hospital routine care
As the hospital routine. Allow the father to visit the neonate, touching the neonate



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Paternal Attachment measured by the Paternal Attachment Questionnaire (PAQ) [ Time Frame: the first three postpartum days ]
    measured by the Paternal Attachment Questionnaire (PAQ)
