Aim To assess level of Knowledge regarding obstetric danger signs among pregnant women and study the effect of socio-demographic variables on the knowledge of obstetric danger signs among pregnant women. Methodology All pregnant females who were registered during the period of study at five sub-centers (Shanapora, Theed, Ishbar-Nishat, Nandpora, and Hazratbal) of the Block Hazratbal were approached. A total of 153 females were included. Results All women had at least knowledge about two danger signs of pregnancy. The current study reveals that 87 % of females knew vagina bleeding, 84 % knew decreased fetal movements and 63 % knew increased blood pressure in pregnancy as danger signs of pregnancy. The main factors that were found to have statistical association with knowledge about danger signs were educational status, socio-economic class and parity of the pregnant females.
