Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics (Pearson’s) through SPSS software version 24. Results: 69% of mothers had good and very good, 22% had moderate, and 9% had poor and very poor self-efficacy. Self-efficacy had a significant positive relationship with active search, information use, information transfer, information evaluation, and a negative relationship with information barriers. Conclusion: Most mothers have a good level of self-efficacy when searching for information. Mothers with higher levels of self-efficacy actively sought out health information and were more successful in using, transmitting, and evaluating the information. Therefore, strengthening these beliefs to achieve the desired results can be considered by officials and decision makers in the field of health.
