Current research suggests that military wives may experience difficulty during the transition to motherhood due to the additive stressors of military life and an inability to access traditional support systems. This randomized clinical trial tests the effects of a nursing intervention on maternal role adaptation in military wives. Primigravid military wives will be randomly assigned to either a traditional childbirth education program or to "Baby Boot Camp" (BBC). BBC is a 5-week childbirth/parenting preparation program based on a resilience paradigm that enhances protective factors. Strategies of BBC include identification of non-traditional external resources and development of internal resources to facilitate maternal adaptation. The Prenatal/Postpartum Self-Evaluation Questionnaires, the Personal Resource Questionnaire, and the Resilience Scale will be administered at baseline, immediately following the intervention, and at six weeks postpartum. Preliminary t-tests and repeated measures ANOVA will examine differences over time in maternal role adaptation between and within groups. Findings may lead to wider development and utilization of childbirth/parenting programs designed to meet the unique strengths and needs of military wives during the transition to motherhood.
