Pregnancy and delivery complications account for greater proportion of deaths and disability among women in reproductive age than any other reproductive health problems. The purpose of the study was to assess the Assessment of Influence of Obstetric Variables n he Use of Skilled Delivery Service by Pregnant Women at Health Facilities in Ghana. A cross-sectional design was utilised to achieve the overall objective of the study. The study covered pregnant women between the ages of 15-49 years in Central Region of Ghana. Questionnaire was designed and used as the main instrument for the study. Data collected were processed by the use of SPSS version 21 and analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. Women with no history of miscarriage are 1.9 times more likely to use SDS compared to those who have had the experience of miscarriage in life (OR = 1.94, 95% CI = 1.34-2.83, p = <0.0001). Skilled birth attendants should educate the pregnant women about the complications associated with pregnancy to enable them seek timely care at health facilities.
