The reliability of the instrument was tested through the use of pilot study on ten (10) respondents from the antenatal clinic of a different setting. It was subjected to Cronbach Alpha co-efficient test and 0.89 was obtained which made the instrument to be reliable. The data collected was subjected to descriptive and inferential statistics. The findings of the result revealed that pregnant women have a fair knowledge of rhesus factor and incompatibility but are not aware of the importance of taking the test and the complications it posed to the health of their babies.
