Preterm birth leads to delayed maternal identity, which is linked with poor infant outcomes and decreased infant participation in activities of daily living. It is vital that OTs address maternal role competence during the NICU stay to facilitate positive outcomes for infants and their caregivers. This research reviews the strength of occupation-based, caregiver-centered interventions in the NICU that can be utilized to promote caregiver role competence.
