Maternal health is the health of women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. Maternal health comprises the health of women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. Health problems during pregnancy may have serious consequences, not only for the woman but also for her child, her family, and her community. This paper is about the health care taking behavior during pregnancy (Antenatal Care) which is an important indicator of the utilization of Maternal Health Care Services (MHC) in Bangladesh. In our study we have focused on the factors that affect the antenatal care. In our study to define the antenatal care we paid our interest of a woman’s antenatal visit, getting care from doctor, nurse, family welfare visitor (FWV), medical assistant/sub-assistant community medical officer (MA/SACMO). For this study, we used secondary data extracted from BDHS-2011, which is a national representative survey of the 15-49 years age groups women. The analysis has been carried out over 7,315 women who have fulfilled the study eligibility criteria. To see the effect of socio-economic and demographic factors on antenatal care (ANC), One way ANOVA was carried out for bivariate analysis and Generalized linear models (GLM) with log link function was carried out for multivariate analysis. In bivariate analysis it has been found that Type of place of residence, Media Exposure Educational level of Respondent, Husband/partner’s education level, Region, Religion, Wealth index, Belong to NGO and Age of mother at birth has significant effect on antenatal care (ANC).
Key words: Antenatal care (ANC), Socio-economic factors, Demographic factors, One way ANOVA, Multiple comparison, Generalized linear model.
