Convenience sampling technique was used on 100 Antenatal mothers who were fulfilling the inclusion criteria. A structured interview schedule was developed to assess the knowledge on minor disorders of pregnancy and its management. Results shows 51% had moderate knowledge, 24% had adequate knowledge and 25% had inadequate knowledge on minor disorders of pregnancy, 50% had adequate knowledge, 28% had moderate knowledge and 22% had inadequate knowledge on management of minor disorders of pregnancy. There is a significant association between knowledge of antenatal mothers on minor disorders of pregnancy and its management with demographic variables age, religion, education, occupation, family income, type of family, parity, gravida and area of residence.
