Aims: Maternal mortality and morbidity are serious health problems, especially in developing countries. Complications tend to increase in pregnant women with risk factors. This study aimed to investigate the effect of integrated health education in increasing the knowledge of pregnant women to detect high-risk pregnancies.
Materials & Methods: This quasi-experimental study, with a pre-test and post-test design, was conducted on 90 pregnant women in the third trimester of pregnancy, in Jambi City, Indonesia, from July 2020 to March 2021. The samples were divided into three groups, 30 participants received the Maternal and Child Health Handbook method, 30 others received videos, and 30 others received brochures. Before and after the intervention, participants' knowledge was assessed using a questionnaire. Data were analyzed using the Wilxocon test and moderated regression analysis test.
Findings: Most of the respondents' knowledge before the intervention of Handbook was in the Poor category (86.7%). After the intervention, the knowledge of pregnant women was mainly in the Good category (60%). Before the video intervention, most of the respondents' knowledge was poor (46.7%); after the intervention, it was in the Good category (93.3%). Likewise, before the brochure intervention, most of the respondents had poor knowledge (93.3%), and after the intervention, most of them (86.7%) had good knowledge. After the implementation of the interventions, the mean score of knowledge increased significantly compared to before the interventions (p<0.001).
Conclusion: Maternal and Child Health Handbook, video media, and brochures effectively increase pregnant women's knowledge to detect high-risk pregnancies.
