FULL TRANSCRIPT

Thank you Madam.

Pregnancy is the most exciting period in the life of a woman. But not every pregnancy has a happy ending  Miscarriage is a term used for a pregnancy which ends on its own, before 20 weeks of gestation, after that it is stillbirth. But the incidents of miscarriage in clinically recognised pregnancies is 10 to 25 per cent.

In the case of chemical pregnancies is 50 to 75 per cent. There are many causes of miscarriages – malnutrition, socio-economic condition, anaemia, different diseases and lack of proper antenatal care, and in many cases we cannot even pinpoint the cause.

Through you, Madam, I would like to ask the Hon. Minister what the main goal of treatment is in the case of chromosomal abnormalities.
