The study adopted the use of questionnaire, and in-depth interview research approaches to examine the maternal role conflicts and the access to social support that can cushion or prevent the incidence of ill-health during pregnancy among 1362 women that were in their reproductive age (15-49). Data analysis employed univariate and multivariate (binary logistic regression) and two models were formulated. The result shows where women were exclusively doing all the household chores were 0.803 times less likely to be in good health condition. It also indicated that lack of spouse or relatives’ support were negatively related to maternal good health. These factors would 0.583 and 0.927 less likely to enhance good maternal health. The authors conclude that woman double roles have negative influence on maternal health. The author recommends better enlightenment and education of men on exigent maternal health complications issues, to secure their support for current mothers and potential mothers
