Background and purpose: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is the most common medical condition that causes anxiety and stress in expectant mothers. Improving self-efficacy in order to change lifestyle is of great benefit in management of this condition. This research aimed at studying the effect of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) on self-efficacy of women with GDM.
Materials and methods: A clinical trial was conducted in 60 women with gestational diabetes (control n=30 and intervention n= 30) attending diabetes clinic in Sanandaj, Iran using convenience sampling. Both groups received routine care but the intervention group were divided into three subgroups (n=10 per group) and also received CBT in seven sessions (1.5-hour per session). Diabetic Self-Efficacy scale questionnaire was administered at three times; before, immediately after, and one month after the intervention. Data analysis was done in SPSS V19.
Results: The mean age of participants was 30.25 ± 5.0 years and the mean gestational age was 26.8 ± 3.0 weeks. Before the intervention, there was no significant difference between the two groups in the scores for self-efficacy (P=0.50), but CBT was found to improve self-efficacy (P<0.001).
Conclusion: CBT in pregnant women with GDM improved self-efficacy. ‎These women are needed to change their lifestyle, therefore,  CBT should be offered in health centers and diabetes clinics to prevent diabetes type II in women with GDM.
