ABSTRACT
The study is a community-based study to determine the factors contributing to the delayed arrival of women with pregnancy-related complication to the health facilities in the Assin District of Ghana. The women with pregnancy-related complications in the district often arrive at the health facilities in the district so late, that this makes the outcome of the management poor with resultant high maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality.The study aimed at finding the factors which significantly contribute to the delayed arrival and to make recommendation on how to improve the situation. The study is descriptive which used both structured questionnaire and focus
group discussion to collect relevant data from five communities. The data were analysed using a computer software.
The major findings of the study were:

pregnancy and pregnancy-related complication.

a pregnancy complications.

women's place of residence, long travel time due to poor roads,
lack of transport and high cost of transport also contributes to
