The results of the present study were similar to study conducted by HA Alwaeli SH Al-Jundi (2005)16who concluded that knowledge and awareness for pregnant women about their teeth and gingival condition is generally poor. Pregnant women need accurate information about their teeth and oral health. Simple educational preventive programmes on oral self-care and disease prevention before and during pregnancy should be provided to improve oral health.Another similar kind of study was conducted by Kim A. Boggess; Diana M. Urlaub, Merry-K Moos etal (2011)1and concluded that pregnant women have some oral health knowledge, which varied according to maternal race or ethnicity. Their beliefs varied according to their education levels. Including oral health education as a part of prenatal care may improve knowledge regarding the importance of oral health among vulnerable pregnant women, thereby, improving their oral health and that of their children.
ABSTRACT “Coping Strategies refer to the specific efforts, both behavioral and psychological, that people employ to master, tolerate, reduce, or minimize stressful events” (Taylor 1998). “Posttraumatic Growth refers to positive psychological change experienced as a result of the struggle with highly challenging life circumstances” (Tedeschi & Calhoun 2004).

A purposive sampling method was used

(2016) realized that "Although many women know that breastfeeding improves infant health outcomes… we hypothesized that informing pregnant women of the maternal health effects of lactation would strengthen their intentions to breastfeed" (p. 235). If health care professionals continue to educate patients before they go through labour, there may be a chance to increase the number of mothers breastfeeding and that will prevent poor

However, looking back over my first birth experience and realizing the long term negative effect that difficult birth experiences may have on women, I have realized that processing childbirth soon after the event is necessary for most women in order to integrate the experience into their lives.
