This research take 100 data from each respondent. The data consist of low birth weight babies (LBW) and infant birth weight enough (IBWE). Data collecting method in this research was using medical records.

Results showed there was no significant relation between gender factor and low birth weight babies (LBW) (p = 0.256, RP = 0.85), there was significant relation between maternal parity status 1 and > 4 to the occurrence of LBW (p = 0.000, PR = 1.7) and there was significant relation between gestational age low birth weight (p = 0.000, PR = 3.37) which means that pregnancy was a risk factor for preterm low birth weight. Maternal parity and gestational age were a risk factor in low birth weight (LBW) but gender of babies was not risk factor in low birth weight (LBW).
