This study aimed to reveal the feelings of women who have given birth to their first child regarding the care given to the new-born, using the qualitative methodology , according to the Phenomenological Trajectory. Eleven first-time mothers from the city of Alfenas in the state of Minas Gerais were interviewed, using the following question:To you, what is caring for your new-born? The convergence of the units of meaning gave rise to three categories:Feelings in caring for the newborn; Physical care for the new-born; The woman's feelings in relation to her partner regarding caring for the new-born. The mothers note a range of positive feelings about the experience of caring for their child and the discourses show that, even in the face of the fear and insecurity, the mothers feel able to carry out the maternal functions regarding caring.
