The subjects were teenage pregnant women, with gestational age of 20-34 weeks.

The control group received routine antenatal care while the experimental group received routine antenatal care and attended the prenatal attachment promoting program provided at the hospital by the researcher. Maternal-fetal attachment was measured before and after receiving the intervention using the Maternal-fetal attachment Scale which was modifi ed from Cranley’s Scale. Independent t-test was used to examine the difference mean in maternal-fetal attachment between the two groups of teenage pregnant women.  The fi nding revealed that the experimental group signifi cantly had better maternal-fetal attachment mean than the control group with the t58 of -14.28 of the p-value less than .05.
