By this study, the investigators aimed to investigate the mother-infant bonding and the factors affecting it, from the point of the family practice, which is responsible for the healthcare of all family members from the fetus to the eldest individual in a family.

The sociodemographic status and the histories of pregnancies of the study participants were recorded. The Maternal Attachment Inventory (MAI), which questions the biological, psychological and social factors, and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) were used to collect data to determine the factors affecting the mother-infant bonding in the postpartum period.

The study is a descriptive survey study, which was conducted to determine the mother-infant attachment and its affecting factors in mothers in the first 6-week of the postpartum period. In order to conduct the study, the local Ethics Committee approval was obtained. (Approval date: 24.11.2016, number 18517).

The mean score of the Turkish version of the Maternal Attachment Inventory (MAI) is approximately 95+6 according to the validation study. In our study, considering that the average MAI score of the participants would be approximately 97, investigators determined to include 73 patients in the study with a type I error set at a=0.05 and with the power of (1-b) 80%.
