Abstract

BARBOSA, Giselly Oseni Laurentino et al. Verbal and nonverbal communication of a blind mother with limited dexterity during infant feeding . Acta paul. enferm. [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.5, pp.663-669. ISSN 0103-2100.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0103-21002011000500011.

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the verbal and nonverbal communication, of the blind mother with limited dexterity with her son and a nurse during infant feeding. METHODS: This exploratory, descriptive case study used a quantitative approach, and was completed in 2009. The interviews were recorded, videotaped and analyzed by three evaluators. RESULTS: The results of verbal communication demonstrated the predominance of the mother as a recipient and the use of emotional function in the verbalizations with the child, and the non-verbal communication showed the prevalence of intimate distance between mother / son, personal space between the mother / nurse and the sitting posture . There was little face to face contact and physical contact with the child stood out. CONCLUSION: The mother suffered no losses in the establishment of the verbal communication process. The distance facilitated maternal interaction with the baby and with the professional.
