Background:This was a descriptive study with qualitative approach, having as its focus the knowledge and practices of riverside mothers and care of their newborn babies.Objectives: to identify the cultural values in riverside mothers’ care of newborns, and to discuss their knowledge and practices with respect to the care of their newborns.

The questionnaire was divided into two stages, the first relating to socioeconomic and cultural identity and the second to the mothers’ care of the newborn baby. Data analysis was based on ethnonursing.Results and conclusion:we interviewed twenty riverside mothers aged between 20 and 46 years, mean age 33 years.
