[2nd International Nursing Research Conference for the World Academy of Nursing Science - Presentation] Purpose This study aimed to clarify the relationship between anxiety level during pregnancy and delivery-related factors ( physical information, a prolonged delivery time, gestational age, blood loss, mode of delivery, and baby?s birth weight) .
Methods Japanese STAI (State-Trait Anxiety Inventory by Spielberger) was conducted on pregnant women. Subjects were recruited from first time pregnant women who were between 32 and 36 weeks of pregnancy and expecting natural delivery. STAI was conducted only once, we focused on the trait anxiety that is a tendency to comparatively stable reaction for the anxiety experience. Since biological data follows the normal distribution in general, we divided the subjects into two groups according to the evaluation criteria of the trait anxiety points and performed t-test on delivery-related factors for each group separately. With regards to ethical considerations protection of anonymity and privacy were explained. In order to ensure the subject?s anonymity and protection of personal information, columns of name were left blank.
Resultü21pregnant women agreed to attend, but five out of 21 excluded by cesarean section. We divided the subjects into two groups: ?Low? (n = 6) and ?Average to High? (n = 10) of the trait anxiety points. A prolonged delivery time for the ?Average to High? group was found to be 692 ± 357 min, which was shorter than 1182 ± 459 min for that of the ?Low? group (p<0.05). Not any significant differences in physical information.
Discussion It was indicated that a certain level of anxiety could be a motivation for pregnant women to take problem-solving actions, which propelled them to acquire necessary knowledge regarding childbirth through childbirth education classes and to prepare for coping with delivery pain appropriately, and eventually they could have a smooth progress of delivery.
