Abstract

Mother and child health is one of the major concerns of public health throughou109 the world. Health education and increased knowledge of mothers in relation to their health is an important strategy for improving maternal health. Even with the best possible antenatal screening, any delivery can become a complicated one requiring emergency intervention. Therefore, skilled assistance is essential to delivery care. In the absence of midwives or nurses, TBAs (who usually perform home deliveries, often as a source of income) should be trained to identify complications, provide immediate first aid, and know when and where to refer Mothers for additional care.

Objective

Further, the effectiveness of mean knowledge found to be 54.33%. statistically the t test was found to be-30.106. that reflects significant enhancement of knowledge score from pre-test to post test at P< 0.05 revealing the effectiveness of planned teaching Programme on selected postnatal complications.

The knowledge of postnatal women regarding selected postnatal complications among the postnatal women was inadequate before the administration of planned teaching Programme. The planned teaching was effective in all knowledge aspects in the post test. However, this study reveals that the planned teaching on knowledge regarding selected postnatal complications among postnatal women was effective.
