BackgroundFear of birth and low childbirth self-efficacy is predictive of post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms following childbirth. The efficacy of antenatal education classes on fear of birth and childbirth self-efficacy has been supported; however, the effectiveness of antenatal classes on post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms after childbirth has received relatively little research attention.PurposeThis study examined the effects of antenatal education on fear of childbirth, maternal self-efficacy and post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms following childbirth.DesignQuasi-experimental study.MethodsThe study was conducted in a city located in the Middle Anatolia region of Turkey and data were collected between December 2013 and May 2015. Two groups of women were compared—an antenatal education intervention group (n = 44), and a routine prenatal care control group (n = 46). The Wijma Delivery Expectancy/Experience Questionnaire, Version A and B, Childbirth Self-efficacy Inventory and Impact of Event Scale–Revised was used to assess fear of childbirth, maternal self-efficacy and PTSD symptoms following childbirth.ResultsCompared to the control group, women who attended antenatal education had greater childbirth self-efficacy, greater perceived support and control in birth, and less fear of birth and post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms following childbirth (all comparisons, p < 0.05).ConclusionsAntenatal education appears to alleviate post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms after childbirth.
