Abstract Objective: This study aimed to understand the experience of mothers during the hospitalization of children in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit of a hospital in the interior of Bahia. Method: This is a qualitative descriptive exploratory study that was made through semistructured interviews applied to nineteen mothers of children hospitalized in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit of a public hospital in Feira de Santana, Bahia. Results: The results were analyzed based on the content analysis of Bardin.

Conclusion: It is necessary to consider the needs of the mother in order to promote a family-centered care and minimize the impacts from the hospitalization of child.
