Realistic or unrealistic expectations are formed prior to having the child and can affect the relationship quality of the mother and infant at 3 months and the reported maternal stress

Realistic or unrealistic expectations are formed prior to having the child and can affect the relationship quality of the mother and infant at 3 months and the reported maternal stress levels at 6 months. Violated expectations can either positively or negatively change the course of the relationship quality and stress levels. To test the nature of such relations, a series of regression analyses and one-way ANOVAs examined the associations between maternal expectations (and violations of maternal expectations) and maternal stress at 6 months.
