Description Objective: To analyze the relation of positive feeling in pregnancy with intentional conception, to analyze the relation between feeling the pregnancy by the women and her partner. Type of study: A questionnaire investigation in a representative cohort. Setting: Ward for Preventive and Social Pediatrics, Medical Faculty, Masaryk University, Brno. Methods: Frequency analysis, Chi-square, F-test. Results: Positive feeling in pregnancy should not be simply associated with intentional pregnancy. In spite of the fact that planned pregnancies are mostly accepted positively, it does not necessarily mean that opposite is true in cases of unplanned gravidity. In the course of pregnancy the positive feeling is growing and the number of unhappy women decreases to a minimum. In women who positively accepted their pregnancy, we found out frequent support by their partner. It is of interest that the attitude of the partner in some cases proved to be more favorable than that of the woman herself. Conclusion: Results of this investigation revealed usefulness of differentiating between intentional conception and its emotional experience, since unplanned pregnancy does not necessarily follow to negative feeling from the position of the woman. On the contrary, partners of the pregnant women accepted pregnancy favorably in most cases.
