Abstract

 Background: Studies have shown that educating mothers can improve their ADAPTATION to pregnancy and motherhood roles. There are also studies that have investigated the effects of certain interventions on maternal-fetal ATTACHMENT. However, studies on the effects of maternal ADAPTATION training on maternal-fetal ATTACHMENT in mothers with a history of fetal or BABY LOSS are rare.Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine the effects of a pregnancy ADAPTATION training package on maternal-fetal ATTACHMENT in pregnant women with a history of BABY LOSS.Patients and Methods: This quasi-experimental study was conducted on 60 pregnant women with previous fetal or neonatal death in 2014. The women were randomly divided in to an experimental group (n=30) and a control group (n=30). The pregnant women in the experimental group received routine prenatal education in addition to four sessions of a pregnancy adaption training package.The control group received only routine prenatal education. The data were collected using a demographic questionnaire, Cranley’s maternal-fetal ATTACHMENT scale, and a prenatal self-evaluation questionnaire at the beginning and at the end of the study. The data analysis was conducted using the Mann-Whitney U, Wilcoxon, chi-square, Fisher’s exact, and spearman correlation coefficient tests.Results: Before the intervention, there were no statistically significant differences between the study and control groups in terms of maternal-fetal ATTACHMENT (P=0.280) and ADAPTATION to pregnancy (P=0.883). However, following the intervention, the mean score of the maternal-fetal ATTACHMENT was significantly higher in the experimental group, when compared with the control (77.57±7.23 vs.61.53±2.62; P=0.001). In addition, the mean post-intervention ADAPTATION to pregnancy score was significantly lower in the experimental group than in the control group (118.89±8.12 vs.126.38±4.17; P=0.001).Conclusions: The pregnancy ADAPTATION training package increased the ADAPTATION and maternal-fetal ATTACHMENT scores in pregnant women with a history of BABY LOSS.
