Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

Aim: This study was planned to assess the relationship between marital adjustment and risk experienced by women during pregnancy.
Materials and Methods: Women who presented to the pregnancy outpatient clinic of the hospital and were admitted to the perinatology clinic comprised the target population of the study. The sample comprised 280 (140 case and 140 control group) pregnant women. Effect size was found as 0.5 and power as 99% depending on type 1 error 0.5. This study was conducted between March and August 2016. Differences between categorical variables were compared by the Chi-square test or Fisher exact test. The Mann-Whitney U test was used to determine the differences between the median scores of the groups.
Results: Three point six percent of the healthy pregnant women and 8.2% of the at-risk pregnant women had problems with their husbands. While 91.4% of the healthy pregnant women defined their happiness level as happy or very happy, this rate was 82.9% for the at-risk pregnant women (p>0.05). While the median Dyadic Adjustment Scale score of the healthy pregnant women was 56.00 (29-70), it was 53.00 (20-69) for the at-risk pregnant women. The difference between the two groups was statistically significant (p0.001).
Conclusion: The at-risk pregnant women in this present study experience negative feelings about pregnancy more than did the healthy pregnant women Health professionals should be aware that pregnancy affects not only women but also all the family members. Therefore, care plans to be prepared for pregnant women should also include the family.
