In addition, by knowing the estimated weight of the fetus, birth attendants can decide whether to plan a spontaneous vaginal birth or not. This study aims to look at the analysis of the suitability of estimated fetal weight (TBJ) using the Johnson-Toshack formula with the birth weight of babies at PMB Nani Suryanti, Palembang City in 2023. This research uses a quantitative descriptive design using secondary data carried out using a cross sectional approach. The research sample was taken by total sampling.
