In various studies the factors which have influence on birth weight are weight gain during pregnancy, body mass index (BMI) of prepregnancy, mother's age and neonatal sex. Attending to importance of birth weight, noticing to some controllable effective factors are valuable, like mother's weight gain during pregnancy. Because investigations about effective factors on birth weight in Iranian mothers were not available, this cohreet study has been done on 206 healthy pregnant which started prenatal care during first trimester. In accordance with statistical analysis and making use of multiple regression test, there was a significant relation between birth weight and prepregnancy BMI (Pv=0. 00) weight of the previous neonate (Pv=0.02) and mother's weight gain during pregnancy (Pv =0.03). Meanwhile the birth weight was reduced by passive cigarette smoking and female gender of neonate. It seems appropriate suggestions in preconceptional care and performance of suitable measurements in prenatal care that could guarantee suitable birth weight.
