Abstract

Background: Birth weight is an important and reliable indicator for neonatal and infant survival, its physical growth and mental development. Maternal weight, height and weight gain during pregnancy have all been shown to be significant predictors of birth weight. However, monitoring gestational weight gain involves considerable difficulties due to poor health services in developing countries. The aim of this study was to examine the correlation between maternal weight and birth weight in Indonesia. Methods: The study design was observational cross-sectional with analytical approach. The research data was obtained from Dr.Kariadi Hopital’s medical records of pregnant mother who having labour on January-February 2011. Recordings were made on maternal weight, birth weight, maternal age, parity, maternal height, and hemoglobin levels. The data were analyzed using correlation and multiple regression test. Result: One hundred and five women showed positive correlations between maternal weight (r=0,462,p<0,01), maternal age (r=0,275,p<0,01), parity (r=0,212,p<0,05), maternal height (r=0,308,p<0,01) and birth weight. However, negative correlation was found between hemoglobin levels (r=-0,152,p>0,05) and birth weight. Multiple regression analysis revealed that the determinants of birth weight in this study are maternal weight and maternal age. Conclusion: There is a correlation between maternal weight and birth weight
