Background: Anaemia is one of the most important factors influencing maternal morbidity and mortality and also the health of the newborn. It is a global health issue affecting nearly half of pregnant women. This study aimed to assess the association of maternal hemoglobin level with poor pregnancy outcomes.Methods: It was a cross-sectional study that included 2 study centers. As per inclusion/exclusion criteria, this study included 650 post-partum mothers. Using Stratified random sampling study participants were enrolled. Data were collected and analyzed in SPSS 23. Using statistical tests i.e., Chi-square, etc data was analyzed.Results: Anaemic mothers had a statistically significant association with low birth weight (χ2-19.921, p-0.000) and babies born dead (χ2-123.759, p-0.000). using multivariate logistic regression analysis mother having low hemoglobin level having higher odds of having low birth weight (OR-1.453, p-0.000, CI-1.212-1.741) and a baby born dead (OR-0.354, p-0.000, CI-0.239-0.524)Conclusions: Improving anemic status during pregnancy can reduce the burden of poor pregnancy outcomes.
