Abstract [en]

The transition to parenthood can involve major adjustments for a couple. New roles are to be learned and new relationships formed, and already existing relationships may need to be realigned. There is a dearth of recent literature about parents' experiences of home visiting by a district nurse and more research is required to explore parents' views of the home visit to help make it meaningful and build a trusting relationship between parents and health professionals. This Swedish study aimed to describe parents' experiences and perspectives of a home visit by a district nurse after the birth of their first child. The study results showed that parents can feel uncomfortable before the home visit and not fully understand the purpose of the visit, but that the respectful attitude of the district nurse encouraged parents to focus on their strengths, and made the visit a positive experience.
