Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim was to synthesize and interpret findings from the body of research on parental experiences of SSC.

Methods: Four databases were searched, without language limitations, up until December 2013. Manual searches were also performed. After a quality-appraisal process, data from the original articles were extracted. The meta-study comprised a meta-analysis, using qualitative content analysis, and subsequently an analysis of meta-method, and meta-theory, and finally the meta-synthesis.

Results: 29 original qualitative papers from 9 countries, reporting experiences from 401 mothers and 94 fathers were included. When synthesizing and interpreting the findings from the included analyses, a theoretical model of Becoming a parent under unfamiliar circumstances emerged. Providing SSC seems to be a restorative as well as an energy-draining experience. A supportive environment has been described as facilitating the restorative experience, whereas obstacles in the environment seem to make the provision of SSC energy-draining for parents. When the process is experienced as positive, it facilitates the growth of parental self-esteem and makes the parents ready to assume full responsibility for their child

Conclusion: The results show that SSC can be interpreted not only as a family-including and important health care intervention but also in terms of actually becoming a parent. The process of becoming a parent in this specific situation is influenced by external factors in three different levels; family and friends, community, and society at large. The descriptions of providing SSC are similar to what has previously been described as the natural process of becoming a mother or a father.
