Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
The normal infant weight (in India) is around 2.8Kg.
Anything less than 2.5Kg can be termed as low fetal weight.
Maternal nutrition and weight gain is directly related to newborn weight.
Also weight gain depends on pre pregnancy BMI (body mass index).

1. Haemoglobin should be > 11.5 (increase intake of green leafy vegetables, dry fruits, jaggery and fruits like pomogranate, Guava, Pears and citrus fruits)
Vitamin C in citrus fruits helps in iron absorption.
2. Small frequent meals with proper calorie distribution is important.
3. Balancing fluids like Tender coconut water, fruit, vegetable juices can improve electrolytes which inturn balance the fluid in the womb.
