Research: Conducted a descriptive, cross-sectional, hospital-based study at Omdurman Maternity Hospital; and collected primary data using a standardized, close ended, directly administered questionnaire, in addition to anthropometrical measurements, collecting secondary data through relevant literature and case studies.

Data Analysis: Analyzed data using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) and identified a strong correlation between the low birth weight of new born babies and prevalence of some diseases among their mothers such as hypertension, anemia, urinary tract infections, malaria, and preeclampsia. Low Birth Weight was also found to be associated with mothers’ age, height, birth interval, and P value.
