dc.description.abstractTo evaluate maternal risk factors associated with low birth weight [‎LBW]‎ among women aged 15-35 years, we carried out a hospital-based, case-control study on 262 cases [‎mothers of neonates weighing </= 2.5 kg]‎ and 262 controls [‎mothers of neonates weighing > 2.5 kg]‎. Odds of delivering a low-birth-weight baby decreased with increase in maternal haemoglobin [‎odds ratio [‎OR]‎: 0.701; 95% confidence interval [‎CI]‎: 0.62-0.79]‎. Odds were greater among mothers not using iron supplements during pregnancy [‎OR: 2.88; 95% CI: 1.83-4.54]‎. Mothers of LBW babies had lower haemoglobin levels before deliveryEN
