Abstract: Maternal mortality is still a serious problem in Bangladesh despite commendable reproductive health care improvements in the past four decades. Regardless of sound provisions for antenatal care (ANC), the focused uptake of ANC among pregnant mothers has been unsatisfactory. Research on the uptake of ANC has so far been only from the health system perspective. Although theories of health behavior highlight perceived risk as a significant factor for people to adopt health behavior, little is known about the association between uptake of ANC and perception of pregnancy complications in Bangladesh.
