[Leadership session research presentation] When children are hospitalized, the participation of mothers and parents becomes fundamentally important from the perspective of humanized care at neonatal units. In this context, this study aims to identify and to analyze the meanings the health team attributes to mothers' and parents' participation in care for hospitalized children and to analyze care practice transformation possibilities pointed out by the health team to promote this participation at a hospital in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. A descriptive research from a qualitative approach was carried out at the neonatal unit of a Second Nivel Hospital in San Luis Potosí, Mexico. Data were collected through semi-structured and recorded interviews that were guided by a guide and complementary questions, involving 11 professionals who had accepted to participate in the study. Their discourse was submitted to content analysis in its thematic mode. Data were collected between June 2005 and December 2006. Meaning cores emerged from this analysis: The mother/parents' presence favors the children's clinical stability and their growth and development process; The participation allows for mother-child interaction and affective bonding; The mother is trained for the child's discharge; The mother/parents' presence changes the environment at the neonatal unit; Favoring the mothers/parents' participation: obstacles and suggestions. It is concluded that, although the health team sees this participation as important, there are barriers resulting from the lack of an institutional philosophy, the professionals' attitude and lack of preparation, deficient infrastructure and human resources. Thus, strategies need to be implemented to allow for the greater participation of mothers and families in care for children at this neonatal unit, working towards integral and humanized care. This study provides information for construction of a Model of Familiar Participation on framework of Participative Evaluation in that hospital.
