Miscarriage from the point of view of Ayurveda
Pregnancy occurs when an egg is fertilized by male sperm and travels down a fallopian tube into the womb or uterus. When the fertilized egg cannot survive a full term, which is 40 weeks, then this condition is called miscarriage. A miscarriage, or spontaneous abortion, is an event that results in the loss of a fetus before 20 weeks of pregnancy. It typically happens during the first three months of the pregnancy.
Miscarriages can happen for a variety of medical reasons, many of which aren’t within a person’s control. But knowing the risk factors, signs, and causes can help you better understand the event and get any support.
During pregnancy, a woman's body supplies hormones and nutrients to the developing fetus. This helps the fetus grow. The most of the first trimester miscarriages happen because the fetus doesn’t develop normally. There are different factors that can cause this.
Conditions that can interfere with fetus development include:
- poor diet
- drug and alcohol use
- advanced maternal age
- untreated thyroid disease
- issues with hormones
- uncontrolled diabetes
- problems with the cervix
- abnormally shaped uterus
- severe high blood pressure
- genetic or chromosome issues
- improper lifestyle
- food poisoning
In Ayurveda, we correlate miscarriage to the condition “Garbh satrav”. This condition occurs when Vata dosha is imbalanced in the body. This mainly happens because of the wrong lifestyle and eating habits. Ayurveda provides the best treatment for miscarriage patients, as it balances the doshas and manages the condition properly. It deals with the signs and symptoms related to miscarriage.
