What is Progeny?

The term Progeny can be defined as the process of life "from fertilisation to the presence of a thriving baby".

This page is intended to guide the general public with information one normally seeks when trying to conceive successfully and the issues arising until and when a child is born.
In Malta approximately 4000 babies are born every year.
Approximately 99.6% are live births and the rest sadly stillbirths.
Progeny encompasses the following subject areas:

  • Fertility
  • Pregnancy
  • Planning your baby
  • Care after delivery
  • Complications of early pregnancy
  • Labour
  • Care of the Mother after delivery
  • Care of the baby after delivery
