Maternal Fetal Health

Description:

Maternal-fetal relationships have been related with psychosocial outcomes for women and children, but there has been an absence of conceptual clarity about the nature of the maternal relationship with the unborn child, and inconsistent findings assessing its predictors. The proposed and tested model whereby maternal-fetal relationship quality was foretold by factors relating to the quality of the couple relationship and psychological health. The hypothesized contribution of individual variances in romantic attachment shown in past research would be mediated by romantic caregiving responsiveness, as maternal-fetal relationships replicate the beginnings of the caregiving system.
