Purpose: This study aims to evaluate the effect of resilience level of high-risk pregnant women on psychosocial health and perceived stress. Materials and Methods: The study was conducted using descriptive design with 54 high-risk pregnant women. Data were collected with `Introductory Data Form evaluated by the reseachers; `Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale'; `Perceived Stress Scale'; and `Antenatal Psychosocial Health Assessment Scale.' Results: Pregnant staying in hospital had higher anxiety and stress, psychological support needs and perceived stress. Similarly, pregnant had bad-staying, stress and psychological support needs were higher. Pregnants with lower educational level had higher levels of perceived stress. Self-efficacy was lower and, anxiety and stress were higher among pregnants received regular follow-up support during pregnancy. Therefore, working pregnant had more tolerance toward negative situations. Conclusion: High-risk pregnancy is significant cause of stress, and it may be directly related to perceived stress of pregnant as a result of resilience and psychosocial health. However, pregnant staying in hospital had higher perceived stress which may be based on being in hospital. Although psychosocial health of these women are high, this level fails to reduce perceived stress. Consequently, it's possible to state that supporting and enhancing resilience of high-risk pregnant had great value to handle this period.
