Adaptational Features of Mothers' Risk and Prevention Appraisals after the Birth of High-Risk Infants.
Affleck, Glenn; And Others
American Journal of Mental Retardation, v92 n4 p360-68 Jan 1988
Mothers (N=67) with newborns who required intensive care were followed up six months after hospital discharge. Mothers' appraisals of risk and prevention were related to mood disturbance and attitudes toward future childbearing. The most important predictor of mothers' expectations of future pregnancies was whether the child was first born. (Author/DB)
