Abstract Paediatric maturity was assessed in newborns whose birth weight was above or equal to 2500 g, of 1742 women of single pregnancy who delivered vaginally, and in 81 newborns with birth weight below 2500 g, by means of Ballard method. The range of maturity was 39 +/- 3 points of Ballard/Klimek score. There were only 14 newborns with birth weight below 2500 g born before 37 gestational weeks, which is only 30.4\% of all newborns with a score below 33 points. The neonatological assessment of physical and neuro-muscular maturity of the newborns, allows to determine the degree of maturity and simultaneously the obstetrical criteria (newborn weight below 2500 g and 37 weeks of pregnancy), indicate only a lower limit of possible maturity.
