ABSTRACT:
Background: The present approach in family planning is to provide a "Cafeteria Choice" – to offer all contraceptive methods from which the individual can choose according to his/her needs and choice. Objective: To assess the knowledge, attitude and practice of teen age mothers about use of various contraceptives available. Material and methods: Two hundred and nine teen-age mothers (10 to 19 years of age) delivered in Shri Chhatrapati Shivagi Maharaj General Hospital, Solapur (M.S.) were taken as sample. Statistical analysis: expressed in simple terms of proportion Findings: 89.47 % mothers, at least knew about one or the other method of birth spacing or control. Only 10.53 percent mothers were unaware about contraceptives methods. The source of information about contraceptives was television (T.V.) and peergroups. Recommendations: To bring awareness and change in the behavior i.e. converting knowledge in to practice, an intensive derive by media mix i.e. traditional and modern tools for Information, Education and communication (IEC) have to be organized.
