The study was conducted among patients in hospitals, specialist counseling centers and gynecological surgeries, and clients of birthing class. The respondents filled out the following questionnaires: Author's sociometric-medical survey, Maternal Fetal Attachment Scale (Cranley); General Self-Efficacy Scale (Schwarzerer and Jerusalem). Statistical analysis (Pearson correlation coefficient) of selected variables showed statistically insignificant (p> 0.05) correlations from very weak to high. A high correlation occurs between the week of pregnancy and a sense of bond with the child (r = 0.792) and a week of pregnancy and a sense of self-generalized effectiveness (r = 0.847).
