Minor disorder of pregnancy and its home management

Lata Gururani, Atul Kumar, Gomathi Mahalingam.

Abstract
Background: During pregnancy, the rapidly rising hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and prolactin change the maternal body into a suitable environment for the fetus and may cause some symptoms in the mother called as minor disorders. Minor disorders are effectively managed at home. Therefore, it is important that a mother should possess an adequate knowledge of the common minor disorders and their management.

Objective: To find the effectiveness of a structured teaching program on the minor disorders for pregnancy and their home management.

Materials and Methods: A quasi-experimental study with a quantitative approach was undertaken to obtain an error-free result. A total of 100 antenatal mothers were consecutively recruited from a selected setting.

Result: Before the implementation of a planned teaching program, the antenatal mothers showed a poor knowledge of the common minor disorders (19.56 12.73), whereas after the implementation, the knowledge significantly improved with the difference of 18.02 0.742 revealing the effectiveness of the planned teaching program.

Conclusion: Teaching about minor disorders of pregnancy and its home management helps the mothers to manage their minor disorders at home itself and continue their pregnancy more comfortably and securely.

Key words: Antenatal mothers, home management, minor disorder, pregnancy
