Abstract

This study explored the health care providers' perception, knowledge, barriers and practice of Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) for premature infants. Total of 111 participants working in NICU and Perinatology wards from four hospitals in Central Java, Indonesia were recruited to this study. The participants were invited to complete the four sections of the Kangaroo Mother Care Questionnaire. Generally they have been practicing KMC with good perception even with deficient knowledge about KMC. Yet the health care providers perceived high barriers to practice KMC and perceived uncomfortable practicing KMC in certain situation. KMC practice in Indonesia need to be highly promoted to be practiced and campaigned thus the health care providers’ negative perception could be reduced as well as educate them to be more confident practicing KMC with adequate knowledge.
