Abstract: The impact of containment and preparedness policies on maternal and newborn health could be more pronounced. Even before the emergence of COVID-19, high-quality and timely maternal health-care services were unavailable, inaccessible, or unaffordable for millions of women. Now restrictions on travel and gatherings, health facilities with limited infection prevention supplies and unreliable infection control practices, and disrupted community health worker routines threaten to exacerbate limited access to care and negatively impact women?s health. In this paper, we discuss knowledge regarding preventive measures on COVID-19 among antenatal mothers and maximize the health outcomes of women and infants. The main study was conducted at SMVMCH, Puducherry. The period of data collection was 1 week, and the data were collected for the 50mothers by using structured knowledge questionnaires. Convenience sampling technique was used. The findings shows that Majority of the antenatal mothers 29 (58%) had adequate level of knowledge, 18 (36%) had moderately level of knowledge and 3 (6%) had inadequate level of knowledge and the mean and standard deviation of level of knowledge regarding preventive measures on COVID-19 among antenatal mothers is (14.80+4.347) respectively. The study shows that, majority of the antenatal mothers have adequate level of knowledge regarding preventive measures on COVID19.
