Example:
Woman is currently at 16 weeks GA, had 2 baby boys delivered at 38 weeks GA,
1 baby delivered at 28 weeks, 1 induced and 2 spontaneous abortions.
= G7P2+1+3+3

gravida === total number of CONFIRMED pregnancies.

para == number of times the female has given birth...


so whatever the past state of the female is.... ADD 1 TO IT FOR GRAVIDA. but nothing for parity (cos she hasnt delivered yet)



eg: female with 2 children ages 7 and 5 is pregnant again.
gravida==== she had 2 children + 1 cos shes pregnant again === G3
parity==== she delivered twice before ---- P2

so her status is G3P2





eg-- Female with 1 child aged 7, had intrauterine death of 2nd fetus for some reason, is pregnant again now
Gravida=== she was pregnant total 2 times before +1 now === G3
Parity === she has only one living child ==== P1
so she will be G3P1
