Abstract: The purpose of this study was to identify the psychological adaptations of mothers whose children were born with low birth weight. The subjects were six mothers whose children at the time of the interview ranged from elementary school to junior high school age. Data were collected by semi-structured interviews. As a result of analysis, the data were classified as follows: (1) the mothers' psychological adaptations were classified into three categories, "existing as a parent," "growing as a person," and "assigning a meaning to the birth;" (2) "existing as a parent" included three sub-categories: loving the child, coordinating the child's school life, and taking responsibility as a parent; (3) "growing as a person" had two sub-categories: understanding the pain of others and view of life; (4) "assigning a meaning to the birth" had three sub-categories: the child was born for my sake, the blessing of having children, and important proof that they had lived; (5) four categories were extracted as factors that strengthen the mothers' psychological adaptations: relationship with the child, the growth of the child, the family's support, and the presence of a person with whom they can talk. The results indicate that the following are important to enable mothers' long-term psychological adaptations: (1) to understand mothers as both person and parent, (2) to support mothers in assigning affirmative meanings to the birth, (3) to approach the factors that strengthen adaptation.
