It was aimed to describe the experience of mothers on the care offered to their children, as well as their perception on child care consultation. A research action was carried out with eleven mothers of children under two years, we used the semi-structured interview in home visits to mothers, followed by monthly visits for child care and health education strategies, and new interviews to assess the implementation of consultations. After data's description and analysis, the categories emerged: Construction of Power to be a Mother, Alternatives and Treatment on the Disease; Learning in Child Care. Consultations favor the care of mothers with the child, providing quality health care through health promotion and disease prevention.
