Assessing the knowledge among pregnant women about antenatal care

Assessing the knowledge among pregnant women about antenatal care (2007)
This study was undertaken to understand knowledge level about antenatal care among pregnant women before and after they were offered pre test antenatal counseling. It was a small study, basically undertaken for capacity building. Total 100 pregnant women accessing obstetric care at hospitals were interviewed for the same. We found that a positive co-relation existed between overall knowledge level and education level. It also brought out the need of repetitive counseling sessions in order to have substantial impact on knowledge levels of these women.
