It's good to keep your pregnancy as late as possible.
The risk of stillbirth increases when the pregnancy expires.
Overall, the rate of stillbirths increases from 0.1 per 1,000 people at 37 weeks of gestation to 3.2 per 1,000 people at 42 weeks of gestation, with a stillbirth risk of 64 percent in 40 to 41 weeks and 87 percent in 41 to 42 weeks of gestation They speak.
Induced labor is usually recommended when the pregnancy is over 41 weeks because it is known to be a risk factor for stillbirth. A prominent obstetrician said that although the risk of stillbirth increases slightly beyond the expiration of pregnancy, the absolute risk is very low, and even though the pregnancy has just passed, it is not necessary to be surprised at the results. However, it is important to not exceed 41 weeks of pregnancy. Induction of labor is safe and can lower the risk of stillbirth.
If it is possible, it is recommended that you do not exceed the pregnancy expiration date.
