Vous serez probablement excitée et anxieuse à l’approche de la naissance de votre bébé. La durée moyenne d’une grossesse est de 40 semaines. La plupart des femmes accouchent entre la 38e et la 42e semaine. Beaucoup de bébés ne viennent pas au monde à la date prévue d’accouchement. Environ 85 % des bébés naissent dans la semaine qui précède ou qui suit la date prévue d’accouchement. La meilleure chose à faire est de considérer votre date prévue d’accouchement comme la meilleure « estimation possible ». La présente brochure explique à quoi vous attendre si la grossesse se poursuit après votre date prévue d’accouchement. Elle traite aussi du déroulement des évaluations post-terme et de la façon de vous préparer à ces consultations. Les symptômes exigeant un appel à l’unité du travail et de l’accouchement sont indiqués.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 1925, “Giving Birth After Your Due Date”. You will likely feel excited and anxious as you wait for the birth of your baby. The average length of pregnancy is 40 weeks. Most women give birth between 38 to 42 weeks. Many babies are not born on their due date. About 85% of babies are born within one week before or after their due date. It’s best to think of your due date as a “best guess.” This pamphlet describes what to expect if you go past your due date. What is done during a Post-Dates Assessment (PDA) and how to get ready for these visits are covered. A list of symptoms which require you to call the Labour & Delivery Unit is listed.
