Aims and Objectives: The goal of the research is to evaluate postpartum women admitted to only certain hospitals in the Chamarajanagar district's inpatient department's awareness and attitude toward temporary family planning methods. Methodology: To evaluate postnatal mothers' knowledge and attitudes towards temporary family planning, a semi-structured knowledge questionnaire and a five-point Likert scale were developed. Results: According to the findings, 58.3% of mothers had intermediate awareness, and 41.7 percent have adequate knowledge. 86.7 percent of participants have a fairly positive attitude, while 13.3 percent have a good attitude. Since most couples have a favourable understanding and attitude about temporary family planning options, the study hypothesis that this is the case is accepted. Present was a weak negative association between knowledge and attitude score (r=-0.039), but it was there nonetheless. It implies that as people's knowledge develops, does though their attitude. Conclusion: The study's overall findings clearly showed that most of the participants had information that is mostly adequate, and even when they have strong knowledge, most of them have attitudes toward temporary family planning techniques that are mostly favourable. Our study aimed to provide an educational brochure regarding temporary family planning methods because most mothers do not use them owing to attitude.
