Topic: CONTENT OF ANTENATAL EDUCATION AND MODALITIES OF DELIVERY AMONG NURSES IN OYO STATE, NIGERIA
INTRODUCTION: There is lack of knowledge on salient issues that are pivotal to survival of mothers and their babies among childbearing women.
Methods: A descriptive cross-sectional study design was adopted using structured questionnaire developed by the researcher for data collection.
Results: The mean age of the nurses was 39.7 with standard deviation of 10.1.The most common mode of delivery is face-to-face teaching (98.2%), while e-teaching is least employed (20.9%). Pictures (87.3%) and posters (79.1%) were the most common materials used for teaching, while majority (72.7%) provided fliers as teaching materials to their clients.
Conclusion: There is no structured content for antenatal education being offered to pregnant women during antenatal clinic. However, every pregnant woman attending antenatal clinic will benefit from balanced information that will enhance positive pregnancy outcome from her care provider, hence the need for structured content and modalities of delivery of antenatal education in Nigeria.
