A descriptive, correlational study was undertaken to determine the relationship between type of birth, vaginal or cesarean, and father-infant attachment. Attachment behaviors were measured in the home one month after birth for 60 father-infant pairs (30 vaginal and 30 cesarean). Results from the father-infant observation tool and the paternal caretaking activities questionnaire indicated no significant difference between the groups. However, the following variables did predict reported caretaking activities: infant gender, previous children, father's presence at the delivery, and early contact.
