Author(s):Atike Kaya* and Kamile Altuntug

Pregnancy is both a physiological and a natural process in a women’s life. Attachment is a behavioral skill that is initiated and maintained through healthy relationships. This study aimed to determine the relationship between sociodemographic characteristics and prenatal attachment. The type of study was descriptive and applied to 394 volunteers and fulfilled the criteria of the 20th gestational week, literate, spontaneously pregnant women who consulted to pregnant follow-up outpatient service of a hospital of gynecology and pediatrics located in the province of Konya. Necessary institutional and board permissions were obtained before data was collected, and verbal consents were obtained by informing pregnant women about the purpose of the study. Personal data form and prenatal attachment inventory were used for gathering the data. The relationship between socio-demographic characteristics and prenatal attachment was examined; it was found that the scale score did not change according to the working status, perceived economic status, and place of residence (p>0.05). However, the mean prenatal attachment score was higher in those whose marriage period was 1-2 years (66.50 ± 8.79) than those who were 7 years or more (63.33 ± 9.68); prenatal attachment scale scores were found to be lower in those with primary education or less than those with high school and university education (p<0.05).
