When did you give birth?
The average length of a pregnancy is 40 weeks - but only 5% of women give birth on their estimated date of delivery. Full term babies are generally considered to be those born between 37 and 42 weeks of pregnancy.
So, I am interested in what week and day of pregnancy you gave birth to your children?
We are all unique, as are our babies. Our babies know when they are ready to be born and our bodies will respond when we are ready. Indeed, I believe that many women have their labours induced unnecessarily simply because they are classed as 'overdue' with no additional risk factors. What do you think?
My babies were born at:
first son: 40+5
second son: 38+4
