Nonviable Pregnancy

Nonviable Pregnancy refers to a pregnancy that fails to progress such as a molar, ectopic, chemical, or blighted ovum pregnancies. Pregnancies in which the baby has little-to-no change of being born alive or surviving outside the womb, such as cases of intrauterine fetal demise (stillbirth), life-limiting congenital diagnoses, and premature birth prior to the 24th week of gestation, are also considered nonviable pregnancies.
