The Chi-square test was used to compare categorical variables while the independent T-test was used to compare means of groups studied. Binary logistic regression was used to assess the factors related to maternal and perinatal outcomes. The level of statistical significance was be set at p-value of <0 p=0.26) P=0.66). P=0.98) P=0.19). AOR=0.202, CI=0.153-0.265). AOR=0.002, CI=0.000-0.032) AOR=0.015, CI=0.005->
