The role of personality traits on mode of delivery.

Understanding women's motives and attitudes for childbirth during their pregnancy may help healthcare providers to tailor women's approach to childbirth to avoid un...

Experiences of women undergoing infertility treatment from embryo transfer until pregnancy test and their conceptualization of their embryo.
CONCLUSION: In this study, it was determined that women had intense physical and emotional experiences during the waiting period after ET and their daily lives were affected.
