To avert this, one of the eight Millennium rnDevelopment Goals called improving maternal health is widely applied through out the world rnespecially in developing countries which have low coverage of maternal services due to several rnfactors.

Data was first rncleaned, edited, coded and entered into computer via epi Info version-3.5.1 and it was analyzed rnusing SPSS version -16, and logistic regression used to assess the association of variables. rnResult: The woman's own educational status, marietal status, occupation status, obstetric history, rnplan to utilize PNC services, long waiting time and decision making problem were significantly rnassociated with the utilization of PNC. As a result of such factors especially lack of awareness, rnand self decision, proportion of women who had received PNC after delivery was (20.2%). rnConclusion and recommendations: the findings of this study showed that postnatal care rnservices utilization is low in the study area due to no/little knowledge, being healthy, being rnbusy, long waiting time, far from house, decision making dynamics, and with out reason.
