This study was conducted in Chabahar to evaluate the impact of education on knowledge, attitudes, and behavior of urban women with high risk pregnancies.

Data were gathered by a researcher-made questionnaire and analyzed by SPSS software version 19 by using paired t-test, independent t-test and, chi- square test.
