ABSTRACT

This research was to assess the knowledge and attitudes of mothers towards caesarian

section among mothers attending MCH clinics at Rwekubo HCIV Isingiro District. The

study was conducted from 60 respondents using a descriptive cross sectional study

design in which the quantitative data was collected for assessing the knowledge and

attitudes of mothers towards CS. From the study, a majority 55 (91.7%) of the mothers

had knowledge about caesarian section and 40 (66.7%) had ever undergone the

operation but still lacked more information to why mothers were operated and crucial

reasons that would lead one to the operation. On the attitude, the study showed 30 (50%)

of mothers were still not convinced that caesarian section was the only safer birth

delivery mode but instead they feared the c/s scars and felt so bad and 25% felt scared

whenever a caesarean section was indicated medically in presence of an indication. The

Social, cultural and economic states of the women which may influence their knowledge

and attitude towards caesarean section were not explored but conclusively attitude was

among a leading problem among mothers towards caesarian section. Therefore, further

studies would have to be done in our settings to assess the adequacy of pre-operative

counseling and the effectiveness of other forms of education such as the use of videos

and leaflets and posters to the mothers attending MCHclinics.
