Full-term Delivery Focus

newborn baby

While you may want to deliver your baby early for convenience or relief from pregnancy-related discomfort, it’s safest to give birth after your baby is full-term (39 to 40 weeks of gestation). That’s why Owensboro Health doctors don’t schedule inductions or C-sections before 39 weeks of gestation for non-medical reasons.
