Antenatal care is the pivotal factor for safe motherhood and one of the most effective health interventions for preventing maternal morbidity and mortality, particularly in places where the general health status of women is poor.
Methodology: A pre experimental, one group pre-test, post-test design was adopted in the study. The study conducted among 40 pregnant women attending OPDs at urban health center, New Delhi. Data collection was done by structured knowledge questionnaire before and after administering the STP.
Results: Majority of pregnant women (62.5 percent), were married at the age of 20 to 25 years; 62.5% were Hindus, 67.5% were having secondary education, 52.5% were homemakers, 55% were from nuclear family, 42.5% were getting Rs.10001-15000/- income per month and 50% had information from health personnel. The overall mean knowledge in the pretest was 15.10 and SD 5.91, where as in the post-test the total mean was 29.18 and SD 7.99.The obtained ‘t’ value was 10.94, which was highly significant. The intervention was effective in increasing the knowledge of antenatal services among pregnant women. There was no significant association between pre-test knowledge and selected background variables education, which proved that the structured teaching program was effective independent of the background variables such as age, religion, occupation, type of family income and source of information on antenatal services.
