Abstract:
Infertility is considered to be a global concern that affects many aspects of life for both sexes. The infertility epidemic is fast approaching and its numbers have reached 186 million people worldwide. The negative aspects of an unhealthy diet can be linked to reproductive health in women and adequate nutritional support can improve fertility. Most health expert recommendations and dietary guidelines acknowledge that certain foods or diet plans can actually improve fertility specifically, diet plans involving accumulated fruit and vegetable intake. However, the amount of nutrients varies significantly among fruits and vegetables, and not all fruit and vegetable choices are thought of “nutrient-rich”.Butter Fruit are distinctive, they contain abundant higher amounts of the key nutrients like folate and potassium, that are usually under-consumed in maternal diets and are coupled to spice up fertility and as well as cut back various sorts of diseases and deficiency as they contain essential nutrients and bioactive compounds.The present review article aims at addressing the proof that Butter Fruit could also be a singular nutrition for reinforcing fertility during pre-conception period.

Abstract:
Background: Maternal health is taking care of health of women during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. As per the report of statistical analysis on health indicators in 2009 in India current neonatal mortality rate (NMR) per 1000 live births is 34 deaths per 1000 live births and maternal mortality rate (MMR) is 254 per 100,000 live births. MMR in Karnataka is 213 for every one-lakh live births, IMR records 45 for every 1,000 live births in karnataka. Hence care of mother during pregnancy, labour and postnatal period plays a vital role. Objectives: 1. To assess the pre test knowledge level regarding maternal bearing down efforts. 2. To administer structured teaching program regarding maternal bearing down efforts 3. To assess the post test knowledge level regarding maternal bearing down efforts 4. To evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching program regarding maternal bearing down efforts 5. To find out the association between pre test knowledge score and selected demographic variables like age, educational status, occupation, gestational age, number of antenatal visits and previous source of information. Methods: The data were formulated by using demographic proforma and structured knowledge questionnaire. Non probability Purposive sampling technique was adopted to select 60 primigravidae mothers. One group pre test- post test design was used to evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching programme. Reliability of the tool was tested and validity was ensured in consultation with guides and experts in the field of statistics, medicine and nursing. Data was analyzed by descriptive and inferential statistics. Result: With regard to the knowledge assessment, the mean pre test score was 10.78 and mean post test score was 20.87. The mean difference between pre-test score and post test score was 10.09. This indicated that the STP was effective. Interpretation and conclusion: Further, effectiveness of STP was tested using the paired ‘t’ test.
