Abstract

Introduction: The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between the anxiety of mothers and the number of children. Materials and Methods: The population of the study was women in Alborz and Tehran provinces in the first three months of 2018. Among women from the Alborz and Tehran (the first group were single mothers and the second group had two or more mothers), 384 subjects were selected by simple random sampling. The instrument of this study was Spielberger's state-trait anxiety inventory (1970). Data were analyzed by Pearson correlation and regression analysis. Results: The results showed that there is a positive correlation between the anxiety of mothers and the number of children (R = 118.0); and the child's variable predicts approximately 1.4 of the maternal anxiety variance. Conclusion: The results of this study demonstrate more attention of authorities in the field of education and health about anxiety and the number of children of Iranian families to reduce the stresses about the more children.
