The changes happened during the first periods from birth and postpartum period can interfere significantly in the family dynamics. The formation of a support net for the family group can be extremely beneficial, so much for the puerperal as for the other members that live in a closer way the child's birth. This study aimed to identify the effective participation of the family members in the puerperal cares and to the baby after hospital rise and to analyze the dynamics of the family during this period. Qualitative research, made among April and May in 2004, with mothers on postpartum period and her family, taken care by the Health of the Family Program on the East Region of the city of Goiânia-GO. During the analysis three thematic categories were identified: The familiar dynamics; the assistance support to the woman; the experience of the birth. It was verified that the assistance to puerperal and to the baby is shared by the members of the familiar clan. The grandmothers are significant people in the care, domestic work and financial support. The small participation or paternal absence is associated with their work. The professional support was important for the families, in leading to a reflexive posture how much to the necessity of developing actions integrated in the assistance to the health of the woman in the prenatal and puerperal period.
