Abstract:   (1086 Views)
Background and Objectives: Studies have shown that high levels of perceived stress during pregnancy are associated with an increased risk of gestational diabetes, preterm labour, low birth weight, and other complications. In this regard and also considering the role of education in reducing maternal anxiety and stress, the present study was designed and conducted in the primiparous mothers.

Materials and Methods:  The present study is a quasi-experimental study with a control group.  Participants include primiparous pregnant women in Ilam in 1398. Sampling was done by random cluster sampling.  Cohen's perceived valid stress questionnaire was used to collect data.  To analyze the data, descriptive and inferential statistical indices including analysis of variance, independent t-test and paired t-test were calculated using SPSS software. 

Results:  The findings of an analysis of variance showed a statistically significant difference between the perceived stress of pre-test to post-test (F-29.606  P-value = 0.007) and post-test to follow-up (F-62.502 P-value=019). Also, the results of paired t-test showed a statistically significant difference in perceived stress in the intervention group (P-value ≤ 0.05). The results of the present study did not show a statistically significant relationship between demographic variables and perceived stress (P_value≥0.05.

 Conclusion:  The present study showed the effect of e-learning on reducing perceived stress in primiparous women.  Therefore, this method of education is recommended as a useful method, without time and space restrictions to improve the attitude, awareness and practice of mothers
