Abstract

Background & Aim: There is lack of knowledge about features of midwife-mother relationship in different condition and setting where the midwife has different levels of responsibility in terms of the normal and high-risk pregnancy. This study aimed to develop a scale for evaluating the midwife- mother relationship in delivery room.

Methods & Materials: This is a methodological research. Participants were 480 mothers who hospitalized at post-partum ward in a university hospital of Arak, Iran in 2014. Preliminary item pool was developed by qualitative part of the study and literature review. Target group determined the validity of the instrument by using the impact item method. The validity of the questionnaire was determined with content validity ratio (CVR), content validity index (CVI), face validity and exploratory factor analysis. Reliability of the instrument was reported by Alpha Cronbach coefficient.

Results: In the qualitative phase 66-item of questionnaire was developed. Those with impact item index over 1.5, CVR over 0.42, and CVI over 0.79 were considered as valid; while the rest were eliminated resulting in a 48-item scale. Exploratory factor analysis loaded a 43-item with a four factor solution that jointly accounted for 60.4% of observed variance. Cronbach’s alpha coefficient showed excellent internal consistency (α=0.95).

Conclusion: The findings showed that the designed questionnaire was a valid and reliable instrument for measuring midwife- mother relationship in delivery room. It is easy to use the scale, and it contains the most significant features of midwife-mother relationship.

Keywords: validity, reliability, delivery, midwife-mother relationship
