Abstract

The purpose of this study was to study the determinants of self rated health in the low – risk pregnant women of Melaka Tengah in Malaysia. A total of 387 subjects were analysed. The role of mental health, psychosocial stressors, support from husband, coping skills, socio–economic status and pregnancy characteristics in determining self – rated health were studied. Health items were taken from the Duke Health Profile. Bad obstetric history, poor mental health, stress from the family were found to be significantly associated with poor self – rated health whereas good support from the husband was related to good self – rated health.
