Introduction: Perinatal mortality is still high in the developing countries, with a significant proportion for early neonatal mortality. Its reduction depends on identification of causes in view of priority actions to achieve the fourth Millennium Development Goal. Objective: Describe perinatal morbidity and mortality in the major hospital facility of North-Benin. Settings and method: It was a cross-sectional, descriptive and prospective study conducted over the period from March 1 through August 31, 2013 in the Mother & Child Unit of the Borgou Regional University Hospital (CHUD-Borgou) located in Parakou i.e. in the North-Benin. Findings: Perinatal mortality rate was 153.55% still birth rate 87.39% and early neonatal mortality rate 66.16%. Fetal suffering (48.21%), morbidity associated with fetal membranes, through premature rupture of the membranes (60.58%) and neonatal morbidity through neonatal infections (26.32%) were the leading causes of fetal morbidity. Fetal suffering (31.43%) was the leading cause of late fetal deaths; and neonatal infections (33.96%), prematurity (28.30%) and perinatal asphyxia (18.87%) were the leading causes of early neonatal deaths. Conclusion: Perinatal mortality is high in the Borgou Regional University Teaching Hospital (CHUD). Its reduction requires a holistic approach based on new-born care policy
