Abstract : The First Thousand Days of Life (HPK) is a period of 270 days (9 months) in the womb and 730 days (the first 2 years) post-birth. A thousand HPK is very important because the impact of malnutrition in this period is permanent and long-term. The effect of malnutrition in the womb can extend to three generations. Evidence from India that malnourished children are likely to become short adults and then tend to give birth to small babies who are at risk of low risk of dwelling achievement and ultimately have low economic status. Stunting at an early age can predict cognitive performance and the risk of coroner's heart disease in adults (Achadi EL, 2013). The purpose of this study is to find out the risk factors for pregnant women related to stunting in babies in Bungursari District, Tasikmalaya City. Benefits: The benefits of research are to provide input to policyholders and the public that the risk factors experienced by hami mothers will cause stunting events in the baby she is about to give birth to. This research methodology uses kinds prospective cohort research, using quantitative analysis. The subjects of the study were neonatal babies and their mothers. The study was conducted in Bungursari Subdistrict, Tasikmalaya City from May to December 2017 with the sampling technique being proportionate stratified random sampling. The conclusion of the study results is that there is no relationship between socioeconomic characteristics, energy intake, iron intake, zinc intake, and nutritional status of pregnant women with stunting events in infants. There is a meaningful relationship between the history of infectious diseases of pregnant women (p = 0.41) and the incidence of stunting in infants.
