Gestational age is a measure of the age of a pregnancy. Estimation of gestational age and foetal weight of human foetuses is of great medico-legal importance. The present study aims to determine the foetal weight of human foetuses at different gestational age. After permission from the Institutional Ethical Committee the foetuses were collected from Manipal College of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital, Pokhara. The age of foetuses was calculated from the obstetrical history, crown rump length (CRL) and crown heel length (CHL).The weight of the foetuses was calibrated by digital weighing machine. The foetal weight has shown a significant correlation with gestational age. The knowledge of measurement of foetal weight on human foetuses is helpful in anatomy and paediatrics. Accurate prediction of foetal weight is also very important in the management of high risk pregnancies in order to prevent premature deliveries.
