What is Post-term Pregnancy?
Post-maturity is when a baby has not yet been born after 42 weeks of gestation, two weeks beyond the normal 40.[1] Post-term, post-maturity, prolonged pregnancy, and post-dates pregnancy all refer to post-mature birth. Post-mature births do not have any harmful effects on the mother, but the fetus, however, can begin to suffer from malnutrition. After the 42nd week of gestation, the placenta, which supplies the baby with nutrients and oxygen from the mother, starts aging and will eventually fail. If the fetus passes fecal matter, which is not typical until after birth, and the child breathes it in, then the baby could become sick with pneumonia. Learn More
