What we know about “due dates” is that they are better called “guess dates.” Your due date is not a deadline, and in fact the average first time mother will go into labor a week after her due date. But more important than this is our belief in shared decision making. If you go past your estimated due date we will recomend more monitoring of the baby, with non-stress tests for example. We will ask you what you think; how do you feel. We will discuss the risks and benefits of induction as well as doing nothing, based on what we know about you, your pregnancy, evidence and our experience.
