Material: This study forms part of a realist evaluation. It encompassed 14 interviews with midwives and health visitors and 11 observations of team meetings across four municipalities.
Findings: Multiple interconnected configurations of conditions and mechanisms facilitating and characterising trusting parent-professional relations were found, including woman/family-centredness; timeliness and relevance of interprofessional inclusion, and gentle bridging hereof; transparent communication; and relational continuity. A trustful interprofessional safety net was then established, which parents dared engaging with. Furthermore, good relations promoted trust in other professionals, whilst distrust hampered this.
Conclusion: Preliminary findings indicate that trusting relations between expectant parents in vulnerable positions and interprofessional care teams can be developed and maintained through continuously supportive approaches alongside transparently introducing the right professionals at the right time. This can promote engagement with maternity care services and achievement of parenting skills and coping abilities for mitigating effects of social inequalities.
