Women were randomly assigned either to intervention (n = 60) or control (n = 60) groups. Data were collected by a self-designed questionnaire based on the BASNEF model constructs. After the pre-test, the intervention group received an educational program in 2 sessions each lasting for 60 minutes while the control group received nothing.
