The passage to maternity is a period which has been studied mainly for the negative emotions developed during this period. The limited research in positive disposal and positive emotions (self-confidence, optimism, confidence etc.) during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum shows how these contribute to adapting to maternity, as well as to the woman's mental and physical health including the relationship between the mother and her newborn child.
