Bivariate and multivariate logistic regression models were fit, and the significant level was set to be <0.05.

Results: The study shows that (50.4%) of the participants had achieved (continuum of care), (90%) had antenatal care (ANC4) + visits, (85%) delivered by skilled birth attendance (SBA), and (53.2%) had postpartum care, the result highlights that women’s age, education level of both partners, birth orders, socioeconomic status, accessibility of services, and exposure to the mass media, are associated with women’s use of ANC, and their continuation to have SBA and postnatal care (PNC). The odd of having SBA and PNC increase for mothers who have urine and blood samples were taken, and blood pressure was measured as a part of antenatal services.

Conclusion: We conclude that half of the participants complete the continuum of care from pregnancy through postpartum care. Quality of ANC is associated with women’s use of SBA and PNC that should be given more attention.
