The risk of morbidity and mortality depends on basic pathology which mainly caused the growth problem, severity of growth restriction, gestational age of mother -how much earlier it is, and the baby's gestational age at birth. The 10th percentile is commonly used to define "small for gestational age" at all stages of pregnancy. The risk of neonatal mortality at the 10th percentile has a bimodal distribution with higher mortality at 26 and 34 weeks ' of gestation. A detailed history as per questioner was taken with general physical examination and investigations were done as per requirement. The accumulated data was evaluated and statistically analyzed. The pregnancy outcome of 70 cases was studied, which showed that 40(61.43%) cases went into spontaneous labor, labor was induced in19 (28.57%) cases and 11(1.%) cases were taken for elective caesarean section for various indications. The fetal outcome of the study showed that out of 70 cases recruited in the study, 65 (92.86%) were live births, 3(4.28%) were still birth and 2(2.86%) cases had intra uterine fetal demise.
