The UK has the same incidence of low birth weight babies as Romania--7% of all births. The incidence is higher in deprived areas. In Hackney, east London, 10% of babies are below 2.5 kg at birth. Infant mortality is higher in smaller babies and they are more likely to be sickly infants, have congenital abnormalities or under-achieve at school.
