Availability of USG facility is still limited at hospital. It is necessary the alternative way on monitoring fetal birth weight, however, the USG is not available. Measurement height of the fundus is the simple way in estimating the fetal birth weight. This study was to examine the validity of using estimated fetal birth weight in predicting fetal birth weight that based on height of fundus. The design of this study was a cross-sectional. The collection of data was carry out in one way measurement while before the birth of baby. Generally, it can be concluded that TBJ rule can be used to predict the fetal birth weight. The result of the study revealed that there is the significant correlation between the prediction using TBJ and the Niswander’s modified rules (p = 0.793, = 0.05). However, TBJ rule is easier to be reminded than the Niswander’s rule. For further study, it is recommended to validate TBJ rule using better design, number of sample, and data collection. It is important to increase validity and reliability of the result study so that this result study can be generalized for all Indonesian population
