This week, I discuss the concept of due dates – as well as the free webinar I am hosting soon, the Evidence on Induction at 39 Weeks! I want to provide an overview on this topic so you can be prepped for the webinar, which will include discussions on the controversial ARRIVE study.
Tune in as we discuss what it means to be full term, the accuracy of due dates, and how they are calculated. This is important, because inductions for non-medical reasons have been rising globally in the last 30 years. Studies show that inducing labor because the pregnancy is full term, close to the due date, is the number one reason for induction in the United States.
