Description Our study deals with the mother-foetus relationship (MFR) and its connection to chosen mother‘s charac­teristics. The relationship of MFR and anxiety, depression, quality of partnership, attachment-related avoidance and attachment-related anxiety was investigated on a sample of 339 pregnant women (third trimester). The effect of parity, pregnancy planning, desire for a child and the women’s age were taken into account. Quality of the partnership was the strongest predictor of MFR. Women who considered their relationship with their partner to be functional had a stronger relationship to their unborn baby. Primiparae had a slightly stronger MFR than multiparae and a planned pregnancy is associated with a slightly stronger MFR. The present study uses the new scale of MFR for the first time. The scale overcomes some limits of the older scales and measures different aspects of MFR including emotional, cognitive and behavioural one.
