Antenatal Education

"Antenatal education interventions have an impact on the health of the pregnant woman as well as on the health and wellbeing of next generations in any country. They provide expecting mothers with information that enable them to identify potential warning signs of malfunction or abnormalities during pregnancy as well as strategies to adhere to prescribed treatments and referrals . It has been shown that approximately 80% of maternal mortality could be prevented if the affected mother had a timely access to the essential maternity and basic health-care services . Saudi Arabia has a maternal mortality rate of 24 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births with a lifetime risk of one in 1300 . At present, there is no established plan for antenatal education interventions in terms of content and delivery methods in Saudi Arabia. Antenatal education, if applicable, is provided to primi or multi gravida pregnant women. These interventions are usually delivered as group educational sessions using adult learning strategies and one-to-one strategies; usually between a health professional and a patient. There is a clear need for such interventions targeting the Saudi women. To date, no published study has described the preferred strategies for receiving health education or the educational needs among the target population. This study reports on the learning needs and preferred information seeking behavior as perceived by pregnant women and new mothers in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Levels of antenatal knowledge among the sample are also explored.(Otaiby TAI, Jradi H, Bawazir A (2013) Antenatal Education: An Assessment of Pregnant Women Knowledge and Preferences in Saudi Arabia.)"
