Background: Infants with low birth weight and premature birth are infants who are most at risk of dying at birth. The main problem in preterm labor is about the care of the baby as the younger the gestational age, the greater the morbidity and mortality. This study aims to determine the risk factors of mothers related to early birth events in the general hospital of dr. A. Dadi Tjokrodipo in Bandar Lampung, Indonesia.

Methods: This type of research is an analytic correlation with a case-control approach. The subjects of the study were mothers who gave birth to premature babies, amounting to 55 people and control group: mothers who gave birth to healthy babies totaling 55 people. Data collection uses secondary data. Univariate data analysis was displayed, and Chi-Square test was employed to examine the relationship.

Result: The results showed that the variables that influenced the incidence of preterm birth were age (p value = 0.006), hypertension (p value = 0.01), preterm history (p value = 0.003), bleeding history in the third trimester (p value = 0.013; ) and pregnancy distance (p value = 0.027).

Conclusion: To avoid premature births that can increase infant morbidity and mortality, health care facilities related to mothers and children must provide standard services to screen for the initial occurrence of complications or complications that affect infant welfare.
