Results: The average of iron status is 22,15 nmol/L, meanwhile average of iodine status is 168,63 μg/L with urine median value 165 μg/L. Statistical analysis with multiple correlation test showed no significant relationship between iron and iodine status of third trimester pregnant women to birth weight (r = 0,286; p = 0,141) as well as the babies head circumference (r = 0,195; p = 0,412).
