Abstract

All parents have a dream of begetting the healthy, intellectual and beautiful progeny; this is also
evident from the reference of the word like Suputrkameeya in classics. The influence of diet,
psyche and other routines of mother on the fetus has been talked since ages. Ayurveda describes
simple methods to procure a healthy offspring and the planning of which starts from the selection of
partner. These methods are popularized as garbha samskara worldwide.
Pumsavana Karma is one of the Shodasha Karmas (Sixteen rituals) performed in various stages of life in
ancient India. It deals with the technique of genetic engineering to ensure healthy progeny and to determine
the sex of the child
