dc.description.abstract This research indicates that prevalence of recently delivered women who had knowledge of key danger signs, or those who were birth prepared was very low. Since the majority of women attend antenatal care sessions, the quality and methods of delivery of antenatal care education require review to improve effectiveness. Young age and high levels of education had a synergistic effect on the relationship between knowledge and birth preparedness. The study explores the association between knowledge of obstetric danger signs and birth preparedness among recently delivered women in south-western Uganda. en
