Mr. Hitesh Vaishnav

Abstract


In this pre experimental design, sample consisted of 50 eligible couple selected by Non probability convenient sampling technique. Self structure knowledge questionnaire was used for assessing the knowledge regarding pre conception care. Pre test was done by using the  structured knowledge questionnaire and after 30 days post test was conducted using the same structured questionnaire for assessing the effectiveness of teaching programme regarding pre conception care. Mean percentage of the knowledge score of  post test 23.04 was higher than  pre test 17.49 The ‘t’ value for total pre test and post test was 19.16. The data analysis was done in terms of descriptive and inferential statistics.

           Health care providers involved in pre-primary care enter into a partnership with a woman and her partner, enabling them to assess their health and its impact on their child's health. The role of the health care provider is to provide accurate information; interpret and transfer this information in a clear and concise manner; to support the couple's decision-making process; and donate and refer them to appropriate services where appropriate. The information provided and the techniques used to encourage effective communication and communication will allow the woman and her spouse to make an informed decision about having a child.

With early care we can give a child a great start in his or her life journey. A healthy woman makes healthy eggs. A healthy egg and healthy sperm make a baby healthy. The obligation falls on both women and her partners, 50:50. It focuses on the advancement of women and the health of their partners before pregnancy. Just as pregnancy has taken place; their child’s genetic plan is set.
