ABSTRACT
To assess the influence of maternal malnutrition on the mode of delivery and asphyxia neonatorum, a cross sectional survey of 615 women in the age group of 20-28 yrs at the time of delivery was done. Women with chronic ailments and complicated pregnancies were excluded. The mothers were then classified into three groups based on Weight Height Product Index (WHPI) namely well nourished (WN), moderately malnourished (MMN) and severely malnourished (SMN). The proportion of asphyxiated babies among the three groups did not differ (P greater than 0.05). Abnormal deliveries like caesarean section were more common among SMN group compared to WN group ((P less than 0.01). No such difference was made out between MMN and WN groups (P greater than 0.05).
