|Abstract: ||The impact of antenatal counselling on couples' knowledge and practice of contraception was investigated. An interview questionnaire was used before and after conducting counselling sessions with 200 pregnant women and 100 spouses. The participants were followed up immediately after delivery and 3 months later. Both the control and study groups displayed a lack of knowledge of contraception. Counselling sessions improved the couples' knowledge and practice in the study group. Involving husbands in family planning counselling sessions led to joint decisions being made and encouraged women's use of contraception. The majority of couples retained most of the information given. Integrating family planning counselling into antenatal care in all facilities and involving the husband are recommended|
