In a second phase, a descriptive cross-sectional observational study with an analytical component was carried out in pregnant women captured by non-probabilistic convenience sampling at 16-42 weeks of gestation.
On the other hand, the project Never alone of volunteering of students of the Degree in Nursing of the School of Nursing of the University Hospital Nuestra Señora de Candelaria, integrated by Marta Rodríguez, Eduardo González, Gara Hernández, Jenifer Álvarez and María Begoña Sánchez, addresses the struggle against unwanted loneliness and social isolation for reasons of age.

The jury is made up of nurses and physiotherapists from different fields
