This prospective panel study is designed to determine the

relationship of selected health, individual psychosocial, family,

and demographic variables to functional status during pregnancy and

the postpartum. Functional status during pregnancy is defined as

the extent to which the pregnant woman continues her usual personal

care, household, child care, social and community, occupational, and

educational activities. Postpartal functional status is defined as

the woman's readiness to assume infant care responsibilities and

resume usual personal care, household, child care, social and

community, occupational, and educational activities. A sample of

210 low-risk English-speaking married women are being recruited

from obstetrical and nurse-midwifery practices. Subjects will be

followed longitudinally from the end of the first trimester of

pregnancy until 6 monthes after delivery. Data are being collected

at the end of each trimester of pregnancy and at 3 weeks, 6 weeks,

3 months, and 6 months postpartum, using questionnaires and

semi-structured interview schedules. Data will be analyzed using

descriptive statistics, repeated measures analysis of variance, and

canonical correlation for quantitative data and content analysis

for qualitative data. Data obtained from this study will provide

normative data on variables related to within-subjects changes in

functional status during pregnancy and the postpartum for both the

development of intervnetions which may facilitate optimum

functional status during pregnancy and the postpartum and for the

development of social policy on maternity leave.
