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.

A bone scan measures how much calcium and other types of minerals are in an area of your bone. The scan may help your health care provider determine your future fracture risk and measure your response to treatment. It is important to be aware of specific conditions that may interfere with the scan (such as other tests you had done recently, whether you think you may be pregnant, etc.). This pamphlet outlines how the scan is done, how to get ready, and what to do during the test.
