OLIVEIRA, Maria Aurelina Machado de et al. Low-income late-age pregnant women: sociodemographic, gestational data and subjective well-being. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.3, pp. 69-82. ISSN 1516-3687.

Descriptive and correlational cross-sectional study whose objectives were to delineate sociodemographic and gestational profile, to assess the subjective well-being (SWB) and to relate the indicators of SWB with the variables age, education and income. The study included 80 low-income with 35 or more years old (late-age pregnant women). The research tools were structured questionnaire and the subjective well-being scale. Data are presented as correlation and descriptive analysis according to the nature of the variables. The majority of pregnant women lives with a partner and has no personal income. They are housewives and did not plan the pregnancy; the subjective well-being index was equivalent values to the mean for each indicator (posi­tive emotions, negative emotions and life satisfaction), while significant correlations were weak. The conclusion is that low scholarship and low familiar income were varia­bles associated to the life satisfaction in the assessed pregnant women.
