This paper compares the postnatal reproductive health care among Hindu and Muslim women, and thrust in mainly on the socio-economic profile of the women and includes attitude towards the age at marriage, pregnancy/delivery and children, attitude of women and their family members after child birth specifically examining the prevalence of post-delivery complications and finally, source of consultation/treatment for post delivery complications. Keeping all the above facts in view, the researcher has decided to investigate the phenomenon by using interview and observation technique at Bulandshahar City, district head quarter. The results reveal that Hindu women belong to high socio economic profile in comparison to Muslim women, are more aware and careful about their prenatal and postnatal reproductive health, their in-laws take care of their children, still they suffer from various diseases and have weak infant; another contradictory finding is that Muslim women belong to lower socio economic profile in comparison to Hindu women; are not aware and careful about their prenatal and postnatal reproductive healthy but they are living health life and have healthy infants to that of Hindu women which is really surprising and stimulating issue for further research.

This paper compares the postnatal reproductive health care among Hindu and Muslim women, and thrust in mainly on the socio-economic profile of the women and includes attitude towards the age at marriage, pregnancy/delivery and children, attitude of women and their family members after child birth specifically examining the prevalence of post-delivery complications and finally, source of consultation/treatment for post delivery complications. Keeping all the above facts in view, the researcher has decided to investigate the phenomenon by using interview and observation technique at Bulandshahar City, district head quarter. The results reveal that Hindu women belong to high socio economic profile in comparison to Muslim women, are more aware and careful about their prenatal and postnatal reproductive health, their in-laws take care of their children, still they suffer from various diseases and have weak infant; another contradictory finding is that Muslim women belong to lower socio economic profile in comparison to Hindu women; are not aware and careful about their prenatal and postnatal reproductive healthy but they are living health life and have healthy infants to that of Hindu women which is really surprising and stimulating issue for further research.
