Abstract or Description

Objective. To analyze a relationship between maternal and paternal attitudes towards a fetus and parenteral relations in the families with spontaneous and induced pregnancy.

Subjects and methods. The sample was composed of 332 families, including 228 and 84 ones with spontaneous and induced pregnancy, respectively.

Results. In the group of families who had undergone in vitro fertilization (IVF), the maternal attachment to an unborn baby was significantly higher than in the group of those with natural conception.

Conclusion. Parental relationships were a significant predictor of maternal and paternal attitudes to an unborn child in both groups.
