As a developing country, insecure pregnancy related health status remains one of the major health concerns in Bangladesh. Although the condition of pregnancy and the production of child birth are natural processes, these are never risk free. In spite of several steps are taken to improve the service of maternal child health (MCH), the incidence of weak pregnancy related health status still remain high due to multifaceted web of causal factors especially socio-economic factors. The study is developed with the main purpose that is to establish the vital interaction between the different socio-economic variables and pregnancy related health care services among the study population. The results of this study should contribute to the creation of effective policies and programs that can improve the women's pregnancy related health status in Bangladesh.
