    gravida=number of total pregnancies
    term= term deliveries
    preterm=preterm deliveries
    abortions= abortions (both surgical abortions and miscarriages)
    living= living children


    so my question is what does the term "living children" represent? is living children = # of living birthed children and does that number change if a child passes away (in a car accident for example)

    or does living children include all living children (i.e. adopted, etc)?

    it includes the number of kids that are alive! so... sadly that l can change!

    I believe it refers to biological children only as it deals with the physical act of being pregnant with that child (it is more of a history for the mother's pregnancies/children), therefore I do not believe an adopted child would apply.

    L refers to babies delivered live. If for example, a baby died from SIDS, sometime after birth, baby would still be considered delivered live.
