Abstract: 

Introduction: Lack of knowledge and low levels of information related to various issues of pregnancy among women can create problems and increase medical interventions. This study aimed to identity information needs of pregnant women referred to health centers in Behshahr city during 2016-2017.
Methods: The method utilized in this study is the Applied and Descriptive method. Statistical populations of this study include 188 pregnant women referred to all health centers of Behshahr city during 2016-2017. Data collection was done using a self-questionnaire and its validity and reliability was ascertained by a specialist and Chronbach Alpha method. Descriptive statistics, statistical test and SPSS software (version 17) were used for data analysis.
Results: Findings show that "information about the health of embryo" is the most important information need among pregnant people. Also women say that "Gynecologists" and "Specialist" are the most important resources of access to information, although there are other significant sources such as telegram networks, social media and mobile phones.. In addition, meaningful differences have been seen between some "Information needs" and "resources of access to information" based on pregnant demographic factors".
Conclusion: Pregnant women require diverse sources of information during the term of their pregnancy.. The importance of this information is reported to be high but specialists and managers of health systems can be effective providing in health knowledge and literacy for pregnant women by planning, making policy and regular trainings and educations.
