This paper attempts to describe the ?Childbirth Educational Program? (CEP) and its outcomes for the expecting parents. The analysis of the outcomes of this practice-based study includes identifying strengths and weaknesses, analyzing client?s satisfaction level, and assessing the impact from client?s perspective. Since 1997 to date, this program has trained 560 mothers, 80% of them were between 25-35 years of age and 72% were primipara. The Childbirth Educational Program is held consecutively for four weeks at the Obs/Gyne clinic of the Aga Khan University in Karachi, Pakistan. The content of the program includes physiological changes during pregnancy, role of antenatal exercises, nutrition, breast-feeding, child-birthing, spousal role, baby care and a labour room tour. Some of the strengths identified by the participants were: exchange of useful and practical information; caring attitude of nurses and an effective use of various teaching-learning strategies. The areas of improvement were: involvement of spouse and mother-in-law in all sessions; information about operative deliveries and creating awareness about the existence of Childbirth Educational Program. Overall satisfaction level of mothers from Childbirth Educational Program was 82%. The participant?s perception on impact of this program was: motivation to do breast-feeding; helpful use of breathing exercises; spousal presence and support during child birthing and rearing; and caring approach of nurses.
