A quantitative evaluatory approach and pre-experimental one group pre test- post test was used. Purposive sampling technique was done to select 50 primigravida women. To collect the data structured questionnaire was administered followed by administration of SIM. On the 7th day the effectiveness of the SIM assessed by conducting post test. The statistical analysis of the data shows that the self instructional module was effective in improving knowledge as the ‘t’ value is 20.12 which is significant at p<0.01.
