ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of fathers-to-be’s attachment experience to parents of origin in childhood on their fetal attachment, with their romantic attachment to their partner as a mediating factor. The subjects consisted of 182 men in J province in Korea who completed measures on three attachment scales during the third trimester of their partner’ pregnancies. Data were analyzed by means of frequency, percentages, Cronbach’s reliability coefficient, and structural equation modeling through AMOS 20.0. The findings were as follows. First, the degrees of fathers-to-be’s attachment experience to parents of origin in childhood, romantic attachment and fetal attachment were all above the corresponding median scores. Second, the model proposed by this research demonstrated the effectiveness of using structural equation modelling as an analysis tool, showing that a romantic attachment had a partial mediating effect on a fathers-to-be’s attachment experience to parents of origin in childhood and fetal attachment, which was further shown by means of bootstrapping to be statistically significant. These findings suggest that there is a need for fathers-to-be to feel securely attached to their wives in order to form a strong fetal attachment.
