Abstract:
To compare maternal prenatal attachment between Anglo and Mexican American women, 68 low-risk primigravidae at 23 to 41 weeks gestation were recruited from childbirth classes, prenatal clinics, and a private obstetrician's office. The respondents completed a questionnaire that included the Muller Prenatal Attachment Inventory as well as provided information on ethnic identity and demographic variables. The questionnaires were available in both English and Spanish. There were no significant differences on maternal prenatal attachment scores between Anglo and Mexican American mothers in this sample. One of the most significant findings was that the women in this sample who were taking prenatal classes tended to be younger and have lower educational and income levels.
