Introduction: During the COVID-19 pandemic, the stay-at-home policy, which requires people to carry out activities at home, avoid crowds and minimize contact with people, is a problem for baby spa businesses due to the decline in baby spa patients at their clinics. This study aimed to evaluate the mother's motivation and attitude toward baby spa services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Methods: This cross-sectional study involves parents who are consumers of baby spas and independent practice midwives who provide baby spa services in the Sidoarjo Regency that met inclusion criteria. Sample determination used purposive sampling. All data were obtained directly as primary data, then collected and analyzed using univariate and bivariate analysis in SPSS ver. 20.
Results: Most of the mothers and children were aged 36-40 years (32.0%) and <2 years (72.0%), respectively. Most respondents had high motivation and attitude (70.4% and 74.1%). Chi-square and Fisher exact test showed a significant relationship between the mother's motivation and attitude towards mother's interest in baby spa services (p<0.001)
Conclusion: The mother's attitude and motivation are related to the mother's interest in coming to the baby spa service during the COVID-19 pandemic.
