Abortion causes physical strain and emotional trauma to the pregnant woman. Ability to-correctly predicts risks of spontaneous abortion will help in designing preventive and promotive services. An analytical study was taken up in the SAT Hospital, Trivandrum to find out the association between socio demographic and maternal factors and spontaneous abortion. The sample included 60 women admitted for spontaneous abortion as cases, and 60 pregnant women admitted for other medical disorders in pregnancy as controls. The findings revealed that heavy physical activity during pregnancy, illnesses like PIH, were associated with spontaneous abortion. The findings revealed a strong association between previous history of abortion and present abortion.
