AbstractThe purpose of this quasi-experimental research was to examine the effect of prenatal attachmentpromoting program on maternal-fetal attachment in teenage pregnant woman. The subjects were teenage pregnant women, with gestational age of 20-34 weeks. Simple random sampling was used to select 60 teenage pregnant women. 30 subjects were randomly assigned to control group and other 30 to an experimental group. 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.
