AbstractOBJECTIVE: to analyze the Social Representations attributed by men to their partner's prenatal care. METHOD: descriptive study, with theoretical support in the Theory of Social Representations, in the structural perspective. Men who have experienced prenatal care and are present with their partner in the postpartum period will participate in the study. Data collection will be carried out in a teaching maternity hospital, located in Natal-RN, Brazil, through the use of a semi-directed interview. With regard to data analysis, the assumptions of the Theory of Social Representations will be adopted, as well as the findings of the literature which are relevant to the theme. EXPECTED RESULTS: it is hoped that the study will provide an awareness of how relevant the man's participation is, as a future father, in the context of the partner's prenatal consultations, in addition to helping nursing professionals plan actions for the inclusion of the man in prenatal consultations.
