Pregnancy is an exciting event involving both physical and psychological changes. Many factors may influence the process and lead to high-risk pregnancy or even prenatal mortality. Deficiency of knowledge related to pregnancy is the one. The aim of this study was to probe the needs of the pregnant women. Maslow's Hierarchy needs theory and the modern biological-psychological-social medical model, as conceptual framework of this study were used. 158 pregnant women were interviewed. Four questionnaires were used in convenient samples of the study: (1) self developed questionnaire regarding knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) of the pregnant woman (2) Family function (APGAR) questionnaire. (3) State anxiety inventory (SAI). (4) Center of Epidemiological Studies--Depression Sale (CES-D). The results of the study indicate that most of the pregnant women thought that instructions on knowledge of five categories (nutrition, activity and rest, breast-feeding, sexuality, and laboring) were needed at common level (48.1%-73.4%), knowledge of laboring was ranked much higher than others. There was a significant difference between knowledge and behavior. And the score of anxiety (5.1%) and depression (3.2%) were higher among older pregnant women. Reading health-care booklets, attending prenatal education program, educational level, and family function had significant influence on knowledge and behavior of five categories, anxiety and depression. The following suggestion can be generated based on the research findings. (1) The health-care booklets should be distributed for new married couples. (2) Each hospital or infirmary should have the pregnant education program. (3) Education should be regarded as one important duty of nurses. (4) The content of education should vary along with the gestational age. (5) Stimulating the pregnant women to attend prenatal education can increase the knowledge level. (6) Strengthening supervision to the pregnant and explaining problems of them could improve their behavior.
