Abstract:
A sample of 150 rural pregnant women belonging to middle and low SES groups residing in 5 villages of Parbhani district were selected by adopting purposive random sampling method. The data pertaining to the study were collected by personally interviewing the sample rural pregnant women based on open ended interview schedule. Irrespective of SES, majority of the rural pregnant women (55.33%) were found to be unaware about the delivery process and benefits of TT vaccine during pregnancy (48.66%). It is obvious from the results that irrespective of SES all the rural pregnant women were found to be aware and have preliminary information about significance of blood pressure check-ups and ultrasonography followed by assessing haemoglobin level (95.33%), urine (73.33%), blood type (62.00%), blood sugar (52.66%), HIV infection (26.66%), Hepatitis B (24.00%) and STDs (19.33%) during pregnancy. On the whole based on the SES with reference to the awareness of rural pregnant women about importance of antenatal care, significant differences were observed particularly for few aspects of it.
