Introduction: Puerperal sepsis is an infective condition in the mother following childbirth. It is the third most common cause of maternal death worldwide as a result of childbirth after hemorrhage and abortion. According to the World Health Organization estimates, puerperal sepsis accounts for 15% of the 500,000 maternal deaths annually. In low- and middle-income countries, puerperal infections are the sixth leading cause of disease burden in women during their reproductive years. Puerperal sepsis can cause long-term health problems such as chronic pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility in females. Objective: The main objective of the study was to determine the effect of demonstration on practices of Auxillary Nurse Midwives (ANMs) regarding identification and management of mothers for puerperal infection during postnatal period. Materials and Methods: A quasi-experimental design was adopted to implement live demonstration on 60 ANMs. The samples were selected by convenience sampling technique. A checklist was used to assess the practices of ANM identification and management of high-risk mothers for secondary postpartum hemorrhage during postnatal period. Results: The average pretest knowledge mean in the experimental group was 68.7, which increased to 134.1 in posttest. T-value for this test was 80 with 103 degrees of freedom. Corresponding P value was small (<0.05); null hypothesis is rejected. It is evident that the live demonstration is significantly effective in improving the knowledge of ANMs regarding identification and management of mothers for puerperal infection during postnatal period.
