Objective of the study is to investigate the role that individual and relational variables exert on the development of the prenatal maternal/paternal attachment during pregnancy. 94 expectant couples partecipated in the study and each partner filled out: detection grid of sociodemographic/anamnestic/pregnancy-related variables; PAI (Della Vedova et al., 2008); ECR-R (Busonera et al., 2014); DAS (Gentili et al., 2002); PBI (Scinto et al., 1999); MSPSS (Prezza e Principato, 2002). The results show that the caring style of the birth family, the quality of the couple relationship and some contextual variables influence the transition to parenthood in different ways in men respect to women.
