There was a significant correlation between maternal age (p = 0,022), parity (p = 0,015), and third trimester Hb (p = 0,008) with incident of LBW. There was no statistically significant relationship between birth spacing (p = 0.328), maternal disease (p = 0.801), and maternal education (p = 0.802) with LBW incidence.
