The fathers and mothers of the experimental group underwent prenatal care training by midwives during 8 sessions of 20 - 30 minutes, and the women in the control group underwent the same training without the presence of their husbands. One day before and one day after the end of the research, anxiety and maternal-fetal attachment were measured by Spielberger and Cranley questionnaires, respectively. Results: The results of the multivariate analysis of covariance indicated that after the intervention, women in the experimental group had a significant decrease in anxiety and a significant increase in fetal attachment compared to the control group (p≤0.007). Conclusion: According to the present results, it can be said that the participation of father in prenatal care can be an effective and low-cost way to reduce anxiety and improve maternal-fetal attachment in first-time pregnant women in unwanted pregnancies and Covid-19 Pandemic Increases pregnancy anxiety, is used.
