Impact de la prématurité sur le sentiment de compétence parentale et sur l'attachement mère/enfants dans un contexte de gémellité

Abstract : The general objective of this research is to study twinning and prematurity and the impact of prematurity on the parental self-efficacy among mothers of newborn twins and mother-child attachment. Based on theoretical notions, we tried to understand how the particular conditions of premature birth could affect the parental self-efficacy of mothers, too "premature". It is through a field research with newborn twins as well as with their family, especially their mother, we have tried to answer these questions. We therefore chose to assess the parental self-efficacy using scale "parental self-efficacy" scale cognitions and parenting (PACOTIS) and the quality of the attachment relationship mother-child scales with "near-exploration" and "differential response" of the short version of the Attachment Q-Sort. We conducted correlations between gestational age and birth length of hospitalization twins and score by mothers across "parental self-efficacy" as well as the PACOTIS scales "near-exploration" and "differential response" of the short version of the Attachment Q-Sort. To go further in the analysis of the results, we conducted mean comparisons. The results of this research lead us to the conclusion that prematurity and with it, the duration of hospitalization is not a situation leading to a low parental self-efficacy nor a mother-child attachment poor quality since the gestational age of birth is not correlated with the parental self-efficacy or the quality of the attachment relationship mother-child, moreover, the average scores on the scale "parental self-efficacy" of PACOTIS and scales "near-exploration" and "differential response" of the short version of the Attachment Q-sort tend to be substantially equivalent. These results can be explained by the fact that during the hospitalization of their children, mothers of newborn premature twins receive guidance and support to parenting by professional care of neonatal service that counterbalances the impact of prematurity. This support is based on various interventions undertaken by all members of the healthcare team, whatever their function.
