|Etymology/ Definition||अपप्रजातानां पतितगर्भाणां । सु.नि.९/२६ डल्हण|
|Literary Meaning||M / W – female who has had a miscarriage|
|Implied Meaning||Abnormal delivery either before time e. g. miscarriage or abortion or difficult labour resulting in crisis.|
|Elaboration||Various factors either dietary or behavioural affecting the well being of the foetus resulting in a miscarriage, abortion or stillbirth is called Garbhopaghaatakara Bhaava.|
This condition can lead to accumulation of Rakta in the uterus and manifest as an abscess ( विद्रधि ), which can be serious and result in maternal crisis. It should be handled as emergency and utmost care should be taken as the three Dosha are vitiated and the woman is sapped of her energy, depleted Ojas and Praan`a.
