Maternal factors comprising of social, obstetric and anthropometric are fund to influence LBW. The present study had found association between obstetricrisk factors like age of the mother, parity and gravida with LBW. Similar association was also observed between maternal height, and maternal weight with LBW. However, social factors were not found to be associated with LBW. This could probably be due to RUHSA’s intervention which requires a further inquiry.
