The purpose of this paper is to identify and examine the sources of paternal stress related to the NICU experience and the supports currently available. Once identified, the possible sources of stress will be incorporated into a checklist that will allow NICU staff to assess barriers to bonding and further personalize the interventions to facilitate the relationship between the parent and infant.
