As good nutritional food provides physical health, the unborn child in womb require Sanskar to acquire mental health to thrive. The activity of the mother during pregnancy in the form of prayer (good rational thoughts), Manshakti (positive emotion), conversation with fetus (talk) or expressing feeling (touch) is not only recognized by unborn baby but it has positive effects on physical and mental health. Hence Garbhasanskar is scientific way of molding mental health of unborn child. In the present paper, we are expressing findings of the first phase of our study that is knowledge, attitude and practice among antenatal mothers of Dharwad. Present study concludes, sample population of ANC mothers are not aware of proper scientific knowledge about GS, the source of whatever obscure idea and concept they have is mainly from sr. family members in the form of spiritual preaching hence there is a need for proper training of scientific knowledge about garbhasanskar which is missing. The practices followed are not conductive and nonscientific.
