The Influence of Korean Mothers' Marital Conflict on Follow-Up Childbirth Plan: The Mediating Effect of Social Support and Value of Children
Ha, Min Kyung
Early Child Development and Care, v190 n5 p625-639 2020
This study investigated the structural relationships between Korean mothers' marital conflict, social support, value of children, and follow-up childbirth plan. It also examined the mediating influence of social support and value of children on these relationships. A structural equation model analysis was performed on 1,285 mothers' survey responses from the 2015 Korean Children Panel Study. The results showed that, first, marital conflict directly influenced social support and value of children. Second, social support and value of children directly affected follow-up childbirth plan. Third, marital conflict not only directly influenced follow-up childbirth plan, but also indirectly affected it through social support and value of children. This study concludes with a discussion of the implications of the influence of marital conflict on follow-up childbirth plan mediated by social support and value of children.
