Abstract

Malnutrition is not only harm the physical and mental of mother, but also threatens safety of the fetus. Mothers who insisted pregnant with malnutrition status are at 2-3 times larger risk of giving birth to low birth weight babies than mothers with good nutritional status. This study is an experimental research with pretest-posttest control group design. The purpose of this study is to analyze the effect of zinc capsule to the physical size of born babies in malnutrition pregnant women during third trimester in Bojonegoro Regency, East Java province. The data was collection through questionnaire, food recall, food frequency, monitoring card, anthropometry, blood sampling, and laboratory tests. The population was pregnant women who living in 27 different locations in Bojonegoro Regency. The samples were 32 malnutrition pregnant women during their third trimester who registered in 6 health clinics. The sampling technique is done by simple random sampling. Samples are divided into two groups, the treatment group (n=16) and the control group (n=16). The results of this study showed there was a significant difference between treatment and control group regarding the weight (p<0.000), length (p<0.000), and head circumference (p<0.029) of the born babies. These results suggest that zinc supplementation has positive effect on the physical size of the birth.
