ABSTRACT:
Pregnancy is one of the most precious, memorable and unique experience in each mother’s life. The pregnant mothers should understand the normal physiological changes that are occurring in their body during the stages of pregnancy and should take into account the health care and lifestyle considerations. With a view to that the investigators conducted a descriptive study to assess the knowledge regarding self-management of minor ailments among antenatal mothers attending antenatal OPD in selected hospital of Dadra and Nagar Haveli. A Structured questionnaire was prepared to assess the knowledge regarding self-management of minor ailments among 40 antenatal mothers. The findings of study shows that 2.5% of antenatal mothers have poor knowledge (0-50%), 75% mothers have average knowledge (50-75%) and 22.5% mothers have good knowledge (75-100%) regarding the minor ailments.
