Little is known about maternal-fetal attachment in multi-ethnic urban adolescent populations often seen in community health nursing practice. This cross-sectional study described an early phase of the mother-child relationship, maternal-fetal attachment, in a sample of ethnically diverse pregnant adolescents and examined the difference in maternal-fetal attachment by age, race, parity, and experience of quickening. A convenience sample of 41 adolescents from 10 to 38 weeks gestation were recruited from prenatal classes at a teen pregnancy clinic and several public high schools. Prenatal attachment was measured by the Prenatal Maternal Attachment Scale developed by LoBiondo-Wood and Vito. Adolescents in this study perceived positive levels of attachment. No significant differences in perception were found by age, race, or parity. Subjects who had experienced quickening had significantly higher scores indicating a greater feeling of attachment with their fetus than those who had not experienced quickening. Adolescent levels of maternal-fetal attachment early in pregnancy may influence maternal health care seeking behaviors. Adolescents may be more receptive to health prevention and promotion interventions shortly after the event of quickening and later in pregnancy.
