Pregnancy and giving birth to a baby are physiological and natural phenomena and do not require much medication, since they are not diseases. Undoubtedly they cause some amount of stress to all the systems and hence require extra care and skillful management. There may be some disorders during pregnancy like abdominal pain, constipation etc. Also complaints during parturition and after delivery. Most of the complaints are very well represented in the pregnancy chapter.

(Labour is the process by which the products of conception, when they have reached full term or are nearing it, are expelled by the mother.)

(Spontaneous expulsion of the products of conception before the period of viability of the foetus is termed abortion)

(The period which begins with termination of the third stage of labor and lasts till the genital organs have assumed their normal condition again.ie., 10 to 14 days immediately after delivery)
