Aim: The aim of study was to assess the relationship between maternal health and neonatal outcome among postnatal mothers. Objectives: 1. To assess the maternal health and neonatal outcome. 2. To correlate the maternal health and neonatal outcome. 3. To find the association between the maternal health and neonatal outcome with the selected personal variables. Methods: In this study, descriptive correlational design was used and non-probability convenient sampling technique was adopted to select postnatal mothers from selected Hospital at Mysuru. Pilot study was conducted, the tool and study design were found to be feasible. Maternal health of mothers and Neonatal of babies were assessed by using checklist and interview method. was validated by experts and reliability was established by rater inter rated method. The data were collected and analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. Result: The study results revealed that, there was statistically significant correlation between maternal health and neonatal outcome r=0.78 at 0.05 level of significance. Because of the small sample size, most of the cell frequencies were 0 and hence chi-square could not be computed. Conclusion:
The study concluded that, there is relationship between Maternal health and Neonatal outcome. Hence, maternal health and neonatal outcome has influence the personal variables.
