Thanks for the query.
The chance of survival of the baby depends on the condition of the baby after bleeding and the amount of the blood loss.
If the blood loss is minimal and the process of abortion is at threatened abortion level then there is possibility for survival of the fetus.
Progesterone tablets will help in stopping the blood loss and in continuation of pregnancy.
Take care.
