Introduction & Objective: There are several indicators for determination of health status and one of the most important one is birth weight of newborns which is connected to nutrition quality, care during pregnancy, maternal health quality, growth trend, and natural development. The aim of this study was to find out the effect of maternal risk factors, especially domestic violence, on birth weight of infants in Kohgiloyeh and Boyerahmad during 2004-2005. Material & Methods: This is a prospective case control study. The case group consisted of 318 mothers having infants with birth weight less than 2500 and the control group consisted of 318 mothers having normal weight at birth. This study curried on the regions urban and rural Kohgiloyeh and Boyerahmad province from march to September 2005. Data were collected using a questionnaire and via interview. Statistical analysis was performed using T test, ، binary logistic regression, especially multiple logistic regression models. Results: The mean of birth weight was 2217±324g in case group and 3390 ±392g in control group and the mean of birth height was 46.7±4cm in case group and 49.7 ±3 cm in control group. In multiple regression model, five variables showed significant correlation with birth weight which were include: multiparus [OR = 50, CI (6.5 – 84.3)], gestational age (weeks) [OR = 5.9, CI (2.69 – 12.92)], interval between pregnancy (year) [OR = 0.46, CI (0.29 – 0.72)], birth order [OR = 0.38, CI (0.25 – 0.57)], physical violence [OR = 3, CI (2 – 4.21)]. Conclusion: A strong correlation was found between gestational ages of pregnancy with LOW. The mean of birth weight rise with increasing of birth order. Considering the type of violence, only physical violence in multiple logistic regression models had a statically significant relationship with low birth weight.
