Abstract:
Purpose: To determine the awareness and attitudes of pregnant women towards Islam's hygienic instructions during pregnancy and breast-feeding periods. Background: Pregnancy and infancy are the two of the most enjoyably times in a woman's life. Islam's living doctrine recommends some rules to pregnant women to have a healthy generation with good physical, mental, and social dimensions. Design: This study was a field study. The data was gathered through self-reporting from a questionnaire which contained some questions about the individual's characteristics, attitude, and awareness. The investigation was done on 300 pregnant women who were selected from prenatal care units. Results: The subjects' awareness about the Islam's health instructions during pregnancy were 20.6% excellent, 64% average and 14.7% weak. There was a positive relationship between the women's levels of education and their knowledge about Islamic teachings. Concerning the level of women's knowledge about Islamic health instructions during breast-feeding, 63% were good, 77% were average, and 16.7% were weak. There was a positive relationship between the level of education, the number of pregnancies and women's knowledge about the Islamic trainings. Also, 68.3% of the subjects had positive attitude and 31.7% of them had negative attitude toward Islamic health instructions. There was a positive relationship between the level of education and the number of pregnancies. Regarding the different attitudes towards Islamic health teachings during the breast-feeding, 64% of the subjects had a positive attitude and 36% of them had a negative attitude. The number of pregnancies had a positive relationship with the women's attitude toward the subject. It should be mentioned that there was no relationship between knowledge and attitudes of the pregnant women with respect to Islamic health teachings in pregnancy and breast-feeding periods. Conclusion: Most of the subjects had relative knowledge about Islamic health trainings in pregnancy and breast-feeding, and more than 60% of them had positive attitudes toward these instructions. Based on these findings, it was suggested that the knowledge of the women about these instructions should be increased through publishing pamphlets, magazines, books, and also through informing women by mass media.
