Asymptomatic urinary tract infections resulting from poor diagnosis in pregnant women poses a serious threat of complications during pregnancy. This study reports the prevalence of Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) and the bacteriological causative agents among pregnant women attending antenatal clinics at a Tertiary Care Hospital in Ile Ife, South western Nigeria. 335 mid-stream clean catch urine samples were collected from pregnant women and cultured for the presence of bacterial pathogens. All the isolates were subjected to antibiotic sensitivity testing on Mueller Hinton agar by modified Kirby-bauer disk diffusion technique using CLSI, guidelines.
