As a component of natural movement, live births naturally increase the population. Live births include live births, i.e. births of live children, i.e. children who, after complete expulsion (head, trunk, limbs) from the mother's body, are breathing or in whom at least a heartbeat is observed. A child is designated as stillborn (stillbirth) if it shows no signs of life at birth and if its weight is at least 500 grams or if the gestation period lasted at least 22 full weeks.
