This study was conducted to examine the effect of planned baby care education on maternal attachment and self-confidence levels in primiparous mothers. The research was carried out using a pre-test, post-test, quasi-experimental design with a control group. In the intervention group, mothers were given planned baby care education and an education booklet. Both the median maternal attachment score and the mean self-confidence score increased by statistically significant levels in the intervention group, whereas there were no significant differences in the control group. It is recommended that primiparous mothers in particular should receive education regarding baby care.
