[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of study is to clarify the changes that occur in the QOL, emotional state, and SOC scores of a woman from pregnancy to the first month after delivery, and the relationship amongst these scores.
Methods: We implemented a self-reported investigation (longitudinal study). The questionnaire included items in the Japanese version of EuroQol, Sakano?s emotional state scale, and the Japanese version of the SOC scale. The questionnaire was filled out at four time points: (1) at the beginning of pregnancy, (2) during late pregnancy, (3) within five days after delivery, and (4) at the first month after delivery.
Results: The average SOC scores of the 359 subjects was 60.3 points (1), 59.7 points (2), 61.7 points (3), and 59.3 points (4). There was no significant difference between the scores recorded during the four time points. The average SOC scores were higher for the females during pregnancy and after delivery than for the general population of women. Next, the average depression scores on Sakano?s emotional state scale were 17.4 points, 13.5 points, 12.8 points, and 13.3 points (P < .01). The scores for the other emotional states also showed the same change. Furthermore, the average EuroQol scores were 0.845 points, 1.151 points, 0.708 points, and 0.875 points (P < .01). Lastly, the multiple regression analysis (dependent variables: the lowest QOL score and the highest depression score) showed that the QOL within 5 days after delivery was explained by the SOC score, age, number of deliveries, and QOL score at early pregnancy and that the depression at early pregnancy was explained by the age, number of deliveries, and QOL at early pregnancy.   
Conclusion: It was suggested that the QOL of females after delivery was affected by their SOC.
