A prospective interventional study was conducted for a period of six months in OBG department of a tertiary care hospital. Self-designed questionnaires were used to collect patient demographic and medical details from women of age group 18-60 years. Participants were allocated randomly into test and control group. Student paired t test was used to compare the groups before and after the intervention. p<0.05 was considered statistically significant. A total of 125 hypertensive women were enrolled in the study; 64 patients in test group and 61 in control group.
