Abstract: Objective: To make a comparative evalution of estimation of fetal weight in term pregnancy by using USG and Johnson’s formula and Dare’s formula. Methods: The fetal weight in –utero was calculated by using the above methods in 600 pregnant women at term. The results were correlated with actual birth weight. Comparative analysis of the accuracy of the various methods was done. Results: It was seen in this study that clinical methods can reliably estimate EFW and can be used in settings where USG is not available. Dare’s formula EFW correlated closely to TBW as compared formula. Estimates were obtained using Johnson’s formula and Dare ‘s formula. Conclusion: Both groups had least average error, Dare’s formula EFW concurred with true birth weight with minimal error.
