Aim-This study aimed to make a criterion-related adaptation of the Turkish version of the Mother to Infant Bonding Scale (MIBS), used for measuring the bonding between the Mother to Infant, into Turkish and testing its validity and reliability for mothers and fathers and explain the differences between a Mother to Father.
Method- This is a methodological, descriptive and cross-sectional (1 November, 2007-28 February, 2008) study. The sample of the study consisted of women who delivered vaginally (n=296) in a state hospital and their spouses (n=215). The data of the study were collected using information form, MIBS, and Edinburg Postpartum Depression Scale (EPDS). In the first stage of the study, 296 mothers complying with the criteria and 215 of the husbands who were allowed to enter into the hospital were interviewed. In the second stage of the study, only 202 mother and142 fathers were interviewed. Linguistic equivalence of the questionnaire was established. In order to test content validity, expert opinions were taken. Reliability was tested using item-total correlations and internal consistency analysis. Principal components analysis was conducted in order to evaluate construct validity. The data were analyzed doing exploratory factor analysis, criterion-related validity and test retest studies.
Results- The internal consistency of the scale was determined as Kendall’s coefficient of concordance = W=0,277, p-0,05. As a result of the principal components analysis, the implementation of the scale to mothers yielded two-factor result, the first implementation to fathers yielded two-factor result and the second implementation three-factor result. The Cronbach Alpha internal consistency coefficient of MIBS to mothers was found to be 0.69 in the first phase and 0.68 in the second phase. The Cronbach Alpha coefficient of the first implementation of the scale to fathers was determined to be 0.79 and the second 0.72.Even though the scale has lower internal compliance for the mothers, all the items were found to contribute. (All the item correlation coefficients- r=.21-.54, Cronbach Alpha at the item is delated r= 62-.69). Even though it has higher internal compliance for the fathers, some of the items were found not to contribute to the reliability of the scale (All the item correlation coefficients- r=.08-.80, Cronbach Alpha at the item is delated r =.66-.85). It was determined that the effect of depression in mothers on bonding disappeared in time, and that high depression in fathers were found to decrease bonding to the baby.
Conclusion- MIBS is a valid and reliable tool in measuring the bonding levels of at least literate mothers to their babies. The scale is a valid tool in measuring the bonding levels of fathers to their babies, but it is not a reliable tool with this respect (no internal consistency)-
