Abstract

 

Preconception care is the treatment of women of reproductive age before or between births, in order to ensure that signs and behaviors that may cause a risk to mothers and infants are identified and monitored. The detection and mitigation of risks suggested by a previous adverse pregnancy outcome is a specific component of interconnection treatment. We meant to assess the knowledge, attitude and practices of preconception care among women appointed at a hospital. This study was carried out through the women of the Teaching Hospital in Lahore between September 2020 to December 2020. The questionnaire was circulated on knowledge, attitude and practice of preconception care. The data was analyzed on SPSS-21. The data was analyzed using SPSS (Social Science Studies Statistical Package) version 21 software. The findings of the research show that 2.05±.874 participants have sufficient knowledge and positive approaches while 3.38±1.03 participants have good attitudes about preconception care and 1.28±43.1 participants have good practice at reproductive age. Pregnant women's awareness, attitude and experience of preconception care tests, dietary patterns, and drug consumption may influence their pregnancy outcomes. In this study, the level of knowledge, attitude and practice has participants respond positively.
