Twenty-eight Aboriginal women and 112 age-matched controls were identified from a retrospective chart review of deliveries over a 1-year period in northern Victoria.

Babies born to Aboriginal mothers were significantly smaller and less likely to be breast fed than those from the non-Aboriginal group.
