Birth length is an essential indicator for assessing stunting risk and for subsequent development in adulthood. Maternal factors, height, and gender characteristics have implications for fetal linear growth. This study aimed to determine the correlation between maternal factors: upper arm circumference (LILA), maternal height, father's height, and baby's gender and its relationship to the length of the baby's birth in Kota Bengkulu. The study design was a cross sectional study. Subjects in this study were 145 pairs of pregnant women and their babies who were selected by consecutive sampling technique. Data is obtained by direct measurement and examination — data analysis using correlation test, independent t-test, and multiple linear regression. The average baby's birth length is 48.7 cm, the baby is born short (<48 cm) 31%. There was a significant relationship between maternal factors (height and LILA) and gender with infant birth length (p <0.005) and father height not correlated with birth length (p> 0.005). Maternal height is thedominant factor associated with the period of the baby's birth.
