Abstract

Background

Neonatal hypothermia is increasingly recognized as a risk factor for newborn survival. The World Health Organization recommends maintaining a warm chain and skin-to-skin care for thermo protection of newborn children.

Objective

To assess the knowledge of postnatal mothers regarding prevention of neonatal hypothermia. to prepare and conduct planned teaching program for postnatal mothers regarding prevention of neonatal hypothermia. To evaluate the effectiveness of planned teaching program for postnatal mothers regarding prevention of neonatal hypothermia. to find out the association of pretest knowledge score and selected demographic variables.

Method

The pre experimental (pretest-post test group) design was adopted. Convenient sample technique was used to select the 30 postnatal mothers as sample. Pretest was conducted using questionnaire after that pretest a planned teaching program was conducted for the post test.

Result

The findings of the study revealed that majority (90%) had low knowledge, 10% had average knowledge regarding prevention of neonatal hypothermia in pre test.Similarly, the post test scores depicted that majority (80%) had good knowledge, 20% had average knowledge and none of them had low knowledge regarding prevention of neonatal hypothermia.Most of demographic variables were not significantly associated with level of pre knowledge of postnatal mothers regarding prevention of neonatal hypothermia. Only mother's education status (x2 = 8.585 in the pretest and df=2 and p=0.014) were found to be statistically significant at 0.05 level of significance. Conclusion: This study showed that, the postnatal mother's knowledge regarding prevention of neonatal hypothermia was low and planned teaching program is effective to improve their knowledge.
