Abstract: The present study conducted by the investigator on ?Effectiveness of Video Assisted Structured Teaching Programme on Postnatal exercises in terms of Knowledge Attitude and Practices among postnatal mothers at KIMS Hospital, Amalapuram. Objectives: 1) To assess the knowledge, attitude and practices on postnatal exercises among postnatal mothers before and after video assisted structured teaching program. 2) To evaluate the effectiveness of video assisted structured teaching programme regarding postnatal exercises in terms of increase in knowledge, attitude and practice scores in pre test & post test among postnatal mothers. 3) To find out the association between the post test knowledge, attitude and practice scores with demographic variables of postnatal mothers. Methods: The research approach selected for the study was quasi - experimental approach and one group pre test and post test only design.60 postnatal mothers were selected by using purposive sampling technique. Results: Among 60 post natal mothers, 61.7% had inadequate knowledge, 26.7% had moderately adequate knowledge and 11.6% had adequate knowledge on postnatal exercises in pre test, 63.3% had low attitude, 30% had moderate attitude and 16.7% had high attitude on postnatal exercises, 86.7% had inadequate practices, 13.3% had moderately adequate on postnatal exercises in pre test. In post test after video assisted structured teaching programme the knowledge, attitude and practices levels of mothers were improved, 81.7% had adequate knowledge and 18.3% had moderate knowledge, 66.7% had high attitude and 23.3% had moderate attitude, 50% had adequate practices and 30% had moderately adequate practices on postnatal exercises. The calculated t values were significant for knowledge (14.23), attitude (28.03) and practices (4.43) at p<0.001 level. This clearly states that there is significant difference between pre test mean knowledge, attitude and practices with their post test means. Hence the video structured teaching programme was effective. There is significant association between level of knowledge of postnatal mothers on postnatal exercises with education and family income of postnatal mothers, there is significant association between level of attitude of postnatal mothers on postnatal exercises with type of family and there is significant association between level of practices of postnatal mothers with education and family income of the postnatal mothers where the chi square values were significant at p<0.05 level. Conclusion: The results of the study revealed that the video assisted teaching programme on postnatal exercises was effective in order to improve the knowledge, attitude of postnatal mothers on postnatal exercises.
