ABSTRACT

Objective: Establishing anthropometric parameters of newborn term birth study of maternal factors and socioeconomic risk associated with delayed intrauterine growth associated with prepregnancy body mass index Methods: A study was carried outover a period of one year from October1, 2010 to October1,2011,using data collected from a descriptive-transversal study. We recruited 1408 nondiabetic women, delivering singleton from 37 completed weeks up to 42 weeks gestation. Maternal pre pregnancy body mass index [BMI] was categorised in four classes: underweight:<18.5, normal weight: 18.5– 24.9, overweight: 25–29.9, and obesity:>30 kg/m² Results: The mean birth-weight was 3372 ± 576 g. The incidence of low birth-weight was 5,6%. Among mother’s and socioeconomic risk factors, teenage mothers, mothers with a weight lower than 50 kg or with body mass index lower than 20 kg/m² had a high risk of having a child with intrauterine growth retardation. Conclusion: These findings support the need to control prepregnancy weight against the risk of low birth weight and macrosomia among lean and obese women, respectively.

Keywords: BMI, low birth weight, macrosomia anthopometrics parameters.
