Objective: To examine the relationships between psychological wellbeing and quality of attachment, social support, life stress, and anxiety of low income pregnant women in both early and late pregnancy. Design: Prospective repeated measures design. Setting: Prenatal clinics providing services to low income pregnant women. Participants: A convenience sample of 111 medicaid eligible, medically healthy, English-speaking women ages 18-35 years, between 14 and 22weeks of pregnancy. Methods: The subjects completed self-report questionnaires to collect data. Pearson correlations and paired t-tests were used to analyze the data. Results: Greater psychological wellbeing was related to stronger attachment to the woman's husband/partner and mother and good life events, and lower bad life events, and lower state and trait anxiety at early pregnancy. Conclusions: The findings provide important direction for identifying women at risk for poor psychological wellbeing and targeting them for support interventions during pregnancy and as a safety net for later parenting.
