CUNHA, Ana Cristina Barros da et al. Maternity during the COVID-19 crises: Content validity of psychoeducational resources to coping with stress from the COVID-19 pandemic. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2020, vol.25, n.4, pp.375-385. ISSN 1413-294X.

The COVID-19 pandemic can lead to stress, especially for pregnant women and mothers of babies. It is important to propose resources for them to cope with specific stressors and promote their health and well-being. Two psychoeducational flyers, based on the Coping Dispositional Theory, on information about the COVID-19 and on Positive Psychology interventions are presented in this article. The content validity of the flyers was analyzed, adopting CVC indexes > 0.80. Five experts evaluated theflyers qualitatively, while nine pregnant women and mothers, evaluated themusing a 5-point Likert scale. They responded to a Google Form, sent via WhatsApp, which included a TCLE, a General data protocol and a Questionnaire about the clarity of language, relevance, pertinence, and presentation of the flyers. Considering the results, we highlight the validity of the flyersfor pregnant women (CVC> 0.93) and for mothers (CVC > 0.86 and 1.0) as useful resources for coping with the COVID-19 pandemic.
