Abstract: The work involves study of 445 pregnant women from 11 different villages around Hazratbal area. Various parameters used were socio-economic status, parity, fate of previous deliveries, and duration of present pregnancy. These cases were analyzed with special reference to their knowledge, attitude and practice of family planning. The study reveals that pregnancy percentage noted was 8 cases in urban and 7 cases in rural areas. Amongst patients followed up till their delivery, it was noted that 92 of them had normal delivery, causes of abnormal delivery were breech, transverse lie, APH, pre-echamptic toxaemia, delayed second stage and foetal distress.64 patients had knowledge of family planning, though only 22.2% were practicing it.73 had negative attitude towards it and 17.6% were indifferent. It shows that main reason against practice was religion and literacy rate. It is revealed that socio-economic factors have positive influence in practicing family planning.
