Abstract: 
Background: Our aim was to investigate associations between maternal characteristics, with emphasis on hematological status, and risk of low birth weight and preterm delivery among pregnant women. Materials and Methods: In a cohort study, 1500 pregnant women attending Hazrat Zaynab Hospital for prenatal care and delivery in the period 1379 to 1380,without any risk factors for preterm delivery and low birth weight were included. Maternal characteristics including hematocrit values were recorded at the first antenatal visit. Main outcome measures included birth weight, gestation at delivery. Linear and logistic regression models were used to analyze data. Results: Sever anemia (hematocrit< 24%) was associated with a significantly increased risk of low birth weight «2500g) and preterm delivery « 37 weeks gestation). High hematocrit values (> 40%) did not increase the risk of low birth weight and preterm delivery. Teenagers, women with short height or low body mass index had significantly higher risk of delivering low birth weight infants. Conclusions: Sever maternal anemia, particularly in the first trimester, was significantly associated with adverse pregnancy outcome. Low maternal age, height or body mass index also increased the risk of low birth weight. Improvement in the nutritional status of young women could contribute to improvement health among their infant.
