  1. Listwise deletion was used to remove 39 cases of missing responses in the model
  2. Model 1 unadjusted model examining independent association of maternal health visits and modern contraceptive use
  3. Model 2 adjusted for demographic factors
  4. Model 3 confounding variables adjusted for were postnatal care and place of child delivery
  5. AOR adjusted odds ratio, UOR unadjusted odds ratio, ref reference, N/A not included in the model
  6. ***Statistically significant (p < 0.001), *statistically significant (< 0.05)
