Background: Nowadays, mothers have ceased to breastfeed due to several factors and resort to bottle-feeding or other forms of complementary feeding for their children. This results in physical and emotional problems for children, and socio-economic harms in communities. The aim of this study is to assess the impact of BASNEF model based education on successful breastfeeding in pregnant mothers referring to health centers in Arak. Materials and Methods: This quasi-experimental study was carried out with the participation of 88 pregnant women. The participants were randomly allocated to interuention and control groups. Instructions were given in four sessions on the basis of BASNEF model and behavioral objectives. Eventually, the collected data were analyzed by using statistical tests. Results: Mean scores of knowledge, attitude, enabling factors and subjective norms in the inerurntion group before and after education showed a significant difference in comparison with control group (p<0.001). Conclusion: Model-based education has positive impacts on behavior improvements. Thus, in health programs instead of applying traditional instructions, appying planned education programs based on health education models that have measurable and reliable effects is suggested.
