To study and know the types of congenital abnormalities, the prospective study started for fetus that was born in the Erbil maternity hospital. We studied the sex of the baby, the age of the mother, and their location, and concluded the following results: Among the various types of congenital abnormalities, the highest percentage was observed in the ones related to the nervous system (spinal cord) 34.8%, followed by encephala 15.94%, heart disorders 10.14%, and foot anomalies 8.7%. Moreover, most congenital abnormalities occurred in
