Nohal Haneef | Hana Shetty [2]

Abstract: Antenatal care (ANC) among pregnant women is one of the important factors in reducing maternal morbidity and mortality. Unfortunately, many women in developing countries do not receive such care. A cross sectional study was conducted between January 2017 to March 2017. We selected women attending Antenatal clinic of our Obstetrics and Gynaecology OPD. A questionnaire was designed and all the women were interviewed regarding their knowledge and awareness about antenatal care. The knowledge and the practice were found to be satisfactory. However the basic knowledge was present but the importance of the medication and the complications associated with conditions like diabetes and hypertension was insufficient. There is a need for enhancing awareness about the importance of ante-natal care and for motivating women to utilize maternal care services.
