Iron Deficiency Anemia causes many maternal deaths every year. According to WHO?585,000 maternal deaths occur every year from pregnancy related causes. This means that every minute of a day there is one maternal death and 99%of these deaths occur in developing countries. Using Non ? probability convenient sampling technique 60 samples were collected using structured knowledge questionnaire. The data was analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The results of this study showed that Antenatal mothers in general lacked knowledge about Prevention of Iron Deficiency Anemia before the Structured Teaching Programme. Mean knowledge score was 8.73. There is marked gain in knowledge after the Structured Teaching Programme i.e. 17.60. The difference in knowledge score was statistically significant at 0.05 level (t= 30.8232, p= less than0.0001). A relationship between knowledge score and selected variables were noticed. The statistical significance was at 0.05 level.
