This paper presents the results of a study using the product of symphysio-fundal height and abdominal girth at the umbilical level measured in centimeters and the results expressed in grams to estimate fetal weight at term in utero. The estimated weight before delivery correlated well with the birth weight. This simple method can be used in areas where sophisticated methods are unavailable.
