Self-Evaluation and Attitudes of Pregnant Women
The 9 months of pregnancy constitute a most important transition in woman’s life — from womanhood to motherhood. Psychological characteristics of the pregnant woman can be considered to be the uniting link between a series of hormonal and physiological adaptations to the pregnancy on the one hand, and social psychological adaptations on the other. It can be assumed that the attitudes of the pregnant women towards different events, persons, and objects reflect the social-psychological and physiological adaptations to pregnancy in the psychological realm.
