  Background & Aim: Given the importance of maternal-fetal attachment in pregnancy period and its long-term influence on the health of mother and infant, the aim of this study was comparing the effectiveness of two methods of conventional mindful motherhood training and Islamic-Iranian based mindful motherhood training on maternal-fetal attachment.

  Material & Methods: The sample consisted of 36 Primgravida pregnant mothers in their 3rd trimester referring to the health centers and gynecologists in the city of Isfahan. They participated voluntarily and then were randomly assigned to two experimental and one control groups. All the participants responded to the Maternal-Fetal Attachment Scale (MFAS) before and after the intervention. Data was analyzed by ANCOVA using SPSS-PC (v. 16).

  Results: The findings showed that mother-fetus attachment was significantly different among the three groups (F=5/8, P=0/008) and the mean score of Islamic-Iranian based mindful motherhood group was higher than two other groups ( 14x' type="#_x0000_t75"> 1 = 104.9, 14x' type="#_x0000_t75"> 2 = 97.09, 14x' type="#_x0000_t75"> 3 = 95.00).

Conclusion: Regarding the effectiveness of mindful motherhood training on maternal-fetal attachment, it is suggested that health care professionals consider these interventions along other conventional care methods.
