Abstract
Objectives: The rate of mortality in Perinatal period is considered as one of the most important health indices in a community. The effective factors should be identified and the strategies appropriate to the situations should be developed to maintain and enhance the health level of the neonates as a vulnerable group. The objective of the current research was to determine the rate of Perinatal mortality in Semnan.

Materials and Methods: This cross –sectional study was performed on Perinatal death certificates at neonatal department of Amiralmomenin Hospital of Semnan University of Medical Sciences in 2016 and 2017. An anonymous self-administered questionnaire was developed.

Results: Findings showed that 55.9% of the newborns were premature. 89.1% of infants weighed less than 2500 gram. 35.8% of the deaths were due to prematurity and 1.9 of them was due to congenital anomaly. There was a significant relationship between gestational age and causes of death. (P<0.05)

Conclusions: It is concluded that the development and equipping maternity centers and access to experienced personnel in developing countries should be provided. The findings also suggest that the development of neonates care centers and the access to intensive care special for high-risk neonates are essential issues.
