Abstract

Background: Egypt's population encroach 100 million, the government is trying to change the people's minds.

Family planning is a main point to control growth of population and promoting maternal and child health Aim: to assess attitude and practice of Egyptian married women toward using contraceptive methods to encourage campaign "two-children enough". And compare between attitude and practice of women who had <3 children and those who had ≥3 children. Methods: descriptive research design conducted at antenatal outpatient clinic of Woman's Health Hospital, Assiut University. A total number of 500 women recruited for the study which divided into two groups; group1 (250 women who had <3 children) and group2 (250 women who had ≥3 children). An interview questionnaire that divided into three parts was used. Results: it was found that the majority of studied women (82.8%) in group1 and (74.0%) in group2 agreed with the campaign with highly statistical significant difference between both groups p-value 0.001. Conclusion: the majority of the women in both group had a positive attitude toward family planning methods.
