This paper summarizes the theoretical framework, hypotheses, methodology, findings and conclusions of an article authored by K.I. Armstrong, J.A. Fraser, M.R. Dadds and J. Morris (1999), entitled "A Randomized, Controlled Trial of Nurse Home Visiting to Vulnerable Families with Newborns". The article speaks about mother-child attachment during the postpartum period in families where children are substantially at risk for poor health and development outcomes. Following the presented summary, an analysis is presented of both the positive features and the limitations of the conducted research. The findings and conclusions of the article are also related to the practice of midwifery.
From the Paper:"Dependent variables in the study consisted of measures of: degree of parenting stress; degree of maternal depression; degree to which mother engaged in preventive health behavior, customer satisfaction with the program, and mother-child interactions plus other selected home environment outcomes. Parenting stress and maternal depression were measured at enrollment and again at 6 weeks. Preventive health behavior, service satisfaction and home environment outcomes were assessed six weeks following birth as were child health outcomes."
