Abstract: The purpose of the researchers is to determine the effect of a mindfulness programme on readiness for motherhood, the level of maternal attachment, and on post-partum self-evaluation. We used the quasi-experimental design.

Researchers applied the mindfulness-based Transition to Motherhood programme to the treatment group for seven days. Data was collected between December 2012 and June 2014 in Turkey.

At the end of the study, the treatment group showed improvement in measures of acceptance of pregnancy, level of readiness to give birth, the level of maternal attachment and the level of competence in the role of motherhood.
