Mothers are the main family axes, so maternal mortality and disability will affect all dimensions of family health, so this study was performed aimed to inv-estigate the frequency and effective factors on pregnant women´s mortality in Ilam Province, Iran, 2002-2010.

Bleeding was the most common cause of maternal mor-tality (22.7%). The cause of maternal mo-rtality has statistically significant associ-ation with maternal education level (P=0. 031), maternal age (P=0.029), requiring to special care(P=0.003), the time of dea-th(P=0.019)and the type of delive-ry(P=0.019).
