A study was conducted in the rural areas basically among the women of tea tribe in Jorhat district, Assam, India; during October 2019 to March 2020. The present study emphasized on the reproductive health related aspects of women. The data were collected through distribution of questionnaires, personal talks and reports from ASHA and Anganwadi Centres. The study revealed that their education was limited. Only a small percentage, 15.3 completed Higher Secondary level study. Early marriage between 15-20 years was observed which also lead to early child carrying. Anemia, underweight of new born including maternal pregnancy complications was seen. This could be due to improper diet intake and lack of reproductive health awareness. Of late, they have started taking up family planning measures and avail the medical facilities offered by the government.
Key words: Reproductive health, Pregnancy, Women, Tea tribe, Post- natal care.
