英文摘要:

Aim: this study aimed to explore new parents′ views and experiences during their transition to parenthood.

Background: in China the one-child birth policy may bring more stress and challenges for the new parents due to the lack of experience and greater expectations of their new role. China is also at a stage of rapid economic and social development which creates new conditions for parenthood.

Methods: a cross-sectional survey was conducted from February to September 2009 among 232 mothers and fathers, yielding a 83.6% response rate (n=194 couples). The questionnaire included: the Family Assessment Device-General Function Scale, the Family Resources Scale, the Family Adaptation Scale, and the Chinese Perceived Stress Scale.

Results: there were no significant differences between mothers′ adaptation and fathers′ adaptation during the postpartum period, as well as their perceived stress, family function and family resources (p > 0.05). Method of childbirth was not related to adaptation. About 29% of variance in mothers′ adaptation could be explained by satisfaction with the infant′s gender (B=0.295, p < 0.001), fathers′ adaptation (B=0.236, p < 0.001), and family resources (B=0.179, p=0.016). About 42% of variance in fathers′ adaptation could be explained by mothers′ adaptation (B=0.268, p < 0.001), satisfaction with marriage (B=0.248, p=0.002), satisfaction with the infant′s gender (B=0.209, p < 0.007), and family resources (B=0.206, p=0.002).

Conclusion: this study highlights the importance of family resources to family adaptation and antenatal and postnatal education programmes as part of family-centred care. The possible influences of culture and polices need to be considered by health-care professionals developing strategies to facilitate family adaptation to the early parenthood. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
