Can someone explain how "light" and "small" differ when it comes to coding P05.0- and P05.1-?

Thank you

What are you coding? These codes should not be used for the maternal record. Light would be weight related and small would be size related. The category for small for gestational age covers if the newborn is small for gest age and also if they are small and light.
