Stunting case in Indonesia occupies the 5th position in the world. Stunting is a condition of growth failure so the child becomes too short for his or her age due to multi-dimensional factors one of them is growth disturbance when the fetus. The growth disturbance when the fetus is able to be identified by measuring Symphysis Fundal Height (SFH) which is less than 2 cm based on gestational age (GA). The purpose of this study is to find out the relationship between uterine fundus height at> 20 weeks gestational age with stunting case in infants. The research design is correlative analytic with case control approach. The total population were 271 infants, the sampling technique used for the case group was total sampling and for the control group used a proportionate random sampling to obtain 34 babies for each study group. The research instrument used an infantometer to measure the infant's body length and used the KIA book as a documentation study. The data were analyzed using spearman rank statistical test, significant value of 0.02 (<α 0.05) and correlation coefficient -0.281 showed significant connection between conformity of SFH in GA > 20 weeks with stunting case in infants. The odds ratio 3.59 means that infants with history of SFH that do not fit GA will be at risk 3.5 times experiencing stunting. Based on the results of this study, it should be taken into consideration for the public and health workers regarding the importance of measuring SFH during pregnancy checks so that the fetus that experiences growth disorders is able to be given appropriate management to prevent stunting.
