The Effect of Web-based Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction Program on Pregnant Women

Overview

Pregnancy is a period in which physiological and psychological changes are experienced and discomforts related to these changes are observed, and comfort is affected for the pregnant. However, fetal health concern refers to the concern of the expectant mother about the health of her developing fetus. Mindfulness is a non-judgmental and accepting focus of one's attention on what is happening right now. A total of 88 pregnant women (44 experimental, 44 control) are planned to be included in the study. Data will be collected with the "Personal Description Form", "Prenatal Comfort Scale (PCS)" and "Fetal Health Anxiety Inventory (FHAI)". In the study, a stress reduction program (MBSR) based on mindfulness will be applied by the researcher to the pregnant women in the experimental group.
