Abstract

Fetal biometry refers to the various measurements obtained from sonography which denotes the development of the fetus in a particular period of growth. These measurements describe normal growth of fetal structures and are used to estimate the age and to monitor fetal growth. The biometric measurements attain an optimum value in the third trimester and any abnormality in the range of the values in this particular period can predict fetal anomalies as well.[1] Prakruti (constitution) is the inborn character reflected on the individual which forms the basis of one’s personality.[2] It is a group of characters inherited by an individual depending on the predominance of Dosha (humor) prevailing at the time of conception and which remains with him or her throughout life.[3] Out of the many factors which influence the growth and development of fetus, Prakruti has an important role to play. Hence an effort has been made to know the influence of maternal Prakruti on fetal biometry in the third trimester of pregnancy.
