Introduction: Training and consulting attachment behavior may promote bonding between mothers and infants. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of consultation in primi-parous mothers on Maternal-Fetal Attachment (MFA) in 2015 in Hamadan city, Iran.

Methods: This study was a randomized clinical trial. Subjects were 110 nulliparous women in 30-32 weeks of gestational age. Participants were randomly assigned to two experimental and control groups (each group: n = 55). The collected data included demographic information as well as standard Cranley’s questionnaire information to measure the MFA. Before the consultation, questionnaires were completed by both groups. Then, four weekly group sessions during a month were conducted in the case group, while the control group only received routine care. Two weeks after the consultation, the two groups were re-examined. The averages of score changes in maternal-fetal attachment between the two groups as well as within groups were compared.

Results: After consultation, there was a significant difference between case and control groups on the mean of MFA scores. The mean of MFA significantly increased in the case group (P < 0.001). However, no significant change was observed in the control group.

Conclusions: Consultation of the MFA behavior can be used to promote mother-fetus relationship during prenatal care.
