Asphyxia occupies the third cause of infant death in the world in the early period of life. Asphyxia is a condition in which a newborn cannot breathe spontaneously and regularly after birth. One of the causes of asphyxia is maternal gestational age <37 and> 42 weeks. The purpose of this study was to determine the description of the incidence of asphyxia neonatorum in H.
