dc.description.abstract Objective This study was conducted to determine the maternal and neonatal characteristics that influence very early neonatal mortality using 811 delivery records at the Eastern Regional Hospital of Ghana. Results The very early neonatal mortality rate was 9 per 1000 live births. Multi-parity reduced the odds of very early neonatal death by 30%. Mothers with a previous neonatal death had about 8 times the odds of having a very early neonatal death as compared to those without a history of neonatal death. en_US
