Aim of study: To determine the effect of maternal anaemia on anthropometric and haematological profile of neonates. Subject and method: it is a cross sectional observational study done at tertiary care institute. It includes 130 neonates born to non-anaemic and anaemic mothers (46 and 84 respectively). All data were collected in selected performs and anthropometry was measured as per standard norms. Haematological profile of cord blood was done and data analysed Results: Present study suggests that number of premature labour/birth is statistically significantly higher in severely anaemic mother with P less than0.005 as compared to non anaemic. It also states that mean birth weight, head circumference and total length of neonates of severely anaemic mothers is severely compromised (pless than 0.0005). However, our study states that maternal haemoglobin has no effect on neonatal haematological profile at birth. Conclusion: Maternal anaemia has significant effect on physical growth of foetus and preterm birth.
