Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Latin prīmipara (pregnant for the first time; having given birth to only one offspring; primiparous),[1] from prīmus (first) + parere[2] (from pariō (to bear, give birth to; to beget, produce), ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *per- (to carry forth)). The word is cognate with French primipare.
