AbstractThe purpose of this study was to describe the relationship between spirituality and postpartum adaptation among adult mothers who were single at the time of their child's birth. Ten mothers were interviewed for this study. Adaptation was measured using frequencies of nursing diagnoses in the physiological and psychosocial modes. These nursing diagnoses were then correlated to the spirituality scores. The average number of nursing diagnoses was 7.2 for the 10 mothers. The average spirituality score was 45 out of 60.
