What is the definition of parity for a gravid female ?


In biology and human medicine, gravidity and parity are the number of times a woman is or has been pregnant (gravidity) and carried the pregnancies to a viable gestational age (parity).[1] These terms are usually coupled, sometimes with additional terms, to indicate more details of the woman's obstetric history.[2] When using these terms:

Gravida means pregnancy state including present and past, irrespective of period of gestation Parity means number of previous pregnancies which crossed the period of viability (for India 28weeks)

Parity is defined as the number of times that she has given birth to a fetus with a gestational age of 24 weeks or more, regardless of whether the child was born alive or was stillborn.

Number of times birth of a child more then 24 week live or dead is parity of gravida
