Through best maternal care, the fetal risks can be avoided or at least prevented. . Garbhpal ras, a Herbomineral drug mentioned in the Ayurveda text namely ‘Ras Chandanshu’ is being used in pregnant woman since many decades. It was claimed that Garbhpal ras can be used to treat diseases of pregnant woman and it should be taken from 1st month to 9th month of pregnancy. The aim of present study was to assess the efficacy of Garbhpal ras in pregnancy with respect to maternal and fetal wellbeing and to evaluate possible mechanism of action of Garbhapal ras in pregnancy. In present study, 100 pregnant women were registered. Haematological and biochemical parameters were observed. Ultrasonography parameters like FL/AC ratio, Fetal weight, AFI, Umbilical artery S/D ratio, were assessed. Normal haematological results and biochemical tests show non-toxic nature of Garbhpal ras when given in 125mg BID with milk.
