Abstract

As the subject of child-rearing support has become more a part of society in modern times, in order to stimulate the spread of mother/child attachment formation through baby touch-care, the effectiveness of touch-care was verified by physical data collected by non-linear analysis, obtained from hospitalized mothers shortly after childbirth, as well as with mothers at home. Comparison of values of LLE and Autonomic Nerve Balance by means of fingertip pulse readings were taken before and after touch-care. As a result, the touch-care for baby with mother was effective to both baby and mother. The research suggests that: 1)the touch-care was effective to both baby and mother, 2) avoidance of using touch-care during hospitalization, 3) both mother and father acquiring skill in touch-care prior to childbirth, 4) after hospital discharge, implementation of touch-care in the home at play times and after bath times, are factors that contribute to emotional well-being.
