Pregnant women living in many parts of Africa have increased risk of malaria infection, but limited data exist in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State. Ninety eight (98) pregnant women were recruited from three randomly selected Health Centres located in communities along the Epie creek. Upon consent, 2ml – parts of intravenous blood was collected from each of the recruited pregnant women. A thin and thick blood film was prepared in a grease free slide and stained in 3% geisma. The malaria positive slide and parasite density of each slide was determined according to standard procedures. Out of the 98 pregnant women examined for malaria parasites, 22 (22.4%) were positive. Plasmodium falciparum accounted for 100% of the total positive slides. The prevalence of P. falciparum by location were, Agudama (30%), Yenizue-gene (24%), and Amarata (14.3%), P>0.05. Infections decreased as the age increases and peak (28.0%) at age 25yrs; P<0.05. Primigravidae women were more infected (37.5%) than multigravidae (15.2%). Infection rates decreased in the order of increasing trimester; 1st trimester > 2nd trimester > 3rd trimester. P. falciparum infections were more predominant in pregnant women with Hb level lower than 8g/l. These results highlighted the malaria status among pregnant women in Bayelsa State and therefore call for a public Health interventions.
