Housecall for Health: Full-Term Pregnancy
What exactly is considered a full term pregnancy?
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in this edition of “Housecall for Health”:
U.S. obstetricians are getting more precise about full-term pregnancy. On average, a pregnancy lasts 40 weeks and a ‘term’ baby was defined as one born anytime from 37 weeks to 42 weeks. But now the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists says even at the end of the last trimester, an extra week or two in the womb can be better for a baby’s health and development. The new definitions are published in the journal ‘Obstetrics and Gynecology‘.
