Learning Objective 1: The learner will be able to have a greater understanding of the relationship between the length of linea nigra and the gender of the baby.
Learning Objective 2: The learner will be able to distinguish the facts from myths that surround the entire pregnancy experience.
Methods: Non-experimental correlational method was used in this study. The samples (35) were selected through convenience sampling technique due to the population’s availability and time constraint. The mother’s age, number of pregnancy and children, and marital status were not included in the analysis of data. The primary method of collecting quantitative data was through the use of a 12 megapixel digital camera, record sheet, and tape measure. The results obtained were analyzed using the chi-square and were subjected to SPSS.
Results: Based on the findings, it has been concluded that there is no significant relationship between the length of linea nigra and the gender of the baby.
Conclusion: The researchers recommend increasing the number of participant pregnant women in various hospitals where the study will be conducted. Further, it was recommended that future studies include consideration of the degree of pigmentation, and, the line pattern presented by the linea nigra.
