ABSTRACT Background: too many people (250 million) don't have the mea..'1S to control their fertility and it was argued that doubling that modest investment in FP and maternal child health programs would result in a 70% reduction in maternal deaths and a 44% reduction in the deaths of newborns with additional health, societal and economic benefits. In Uganda there was a high unmet need for FP services of 41%. This study was ain1ed at assessing lmowledge, attitude and practices on use of contraceptives among pregnant mothers attending antenatal care services. Methodology: This study design used was a cross-sectional study from April to July 2018 was carried out at Comboni Hospital in the antenatal clinic. The study population consisted of pregnant women attending antenatal care services and a sample size of 70 participates was purposely considered. A structured questionnaire was used to collect data and entered in SPSS version 25.0. Analyzed and presented in form tables and graphs. Results: Majority 26(37.1 %) didn't complete primary level, majority 28( 40.0%) were protestant, a greater number 38(54.3%) were farmers, and 63(90.0%) were married. Majority 69(98.6%) had ever heard of birth controls or contraceptives and only 1(1.4%) had never heard ofbirth control or contraceptive. majority 46 (65.7%) perceived birth controls as necessary when delaying or tern1inating pregnancy and LlJ.e least 3(4.3%) were tmdecided. majority 37(52.9%) had ever used birth control methods and 33(47.1 %) had never used birth control methods Conclusion, a high percentage of 98.6% had ever heard of birt.lj_ controls or contraceptives and lmowledge of contraceptives was seen as an essential factor associated with effective use of these methods. The co!lh-honest methods of family planning used were injections and pills. 67.1% had ever accessed family planning services from Health Centre and 65.7% got the information from radios. Finding information about birth controls a.'1d get family planning services were not found difficult. Birth controls were found to be necessary when delaying or tem1inating pregnancy and 71.4% of the respondents suggested talking health workers about selection methods of birth control.
