The data of first 1000 non-malformed, mature (greater than or equal to 2500 g) singletons of participants in the Hungarian Family Planning Programme were evaluated. The mean maternal weight gain during pregnancy was 13 kg which was modified by the body weight of women. Maternal weight gain exceeded 13 kg in 54% of pregnant women. There was a positive correlation between maternal weight gain and birth weight which was calculated as 26.6 g/kg.
