The procedure passed through four phases; interviewing and assessment, designing, implementation, and evaluation phase.  Results: Pre intervention study design showed that the majority of the sample in both the study and control groups had poor lactation and it is related with knowledge and practices compared to post intervention. About 74% of the study group had good knowledge, whereas the control group had no significant difference from pre intervention (P ≤ 0.001). It was seen that 72.0% of the study group-initiated breast feeding directly after delivery compared to only 25.0% of the control group. 63% of control versus 39% in study faced breast problems. Conclusion In pre-intervention, most of the members of both study and control group primi moms had poor knowledge and practice about breastfeeding and breastfeeding issues, according to the study's findings. As a result, the program and the booklet distributed were effective in increasing knowledge and practice of lactation problems in primi gravidae.
