Abstract

This study utilized a non-experimental, descriptive type of research, which covered a group of women aging 15-49, who were considered to be in their reproductive age with or without a child or children who may either be biological or adopted, within the selected barangays on the City of Dasmariñas, Cavite. The respondents were chosen using non-probability, quota-convenience sampling. The researchers used a self-made questionnaire for gathering the data. Data was analysed using frequency distribution, percentage, mean, t-test, and Analysis of Variance. Majority of the women of productive age were 18 to 34 years old, married with children, high school graduates, unemployed, middle child of the family, and Caviteños. There respodents have moderate perception on the use of abdominal band or "bigkis" for their babies. There were significant differences in the perception of women of reproductive age on the use of abdominal band or "bigkis" for babies when the respondents were grouped according to age, ordinal position, educational attainment, civil status, ethnic group, and employment status.
