What Is The Purpose Of Your Due Date?

DUE DATE IS THE 96% CHANCE THAT YOU ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE THE BABY THAT DAY.

📆 How do we calculate the due date?

👉🏼 It’s first calculated by using the date of her last period and adding 280 days, or 40 weeks.
👉🏼 That is followed by an ultrasound scan where another estimate is made, based on the size of the foetus.

♥️ If you are pregnant, check out the antenatal-hypnobirthing online course in bio ☺️ for an informed and better birth experience!

⁉️What are the chances to have my baby that day?

👉🏼 The estimation is about 4.4% 😱 (pretty low 🥴)
👶🏻👶🏽👶🏼 60% of babies are born within a week either side of the estimated date of delivery.
‼️More than 90% are born two weeks either side of the predicted date‼️

⁉️ So what’s the point of the due date then?
👉🏼 The main purpose of the due date is to “define a metric for the care” of the mother during pregnancy. So, for example, to interpret early pregnancy blood tests for the risk of i.e. congenital anomalies, it’s important to know how far gone the pregnancy is.

‼️The due date is just a date which helps us to determine the other milestones in pregnancy, that’s all ☺️♥️

⁉️ Was your baby born on her/his due date? How far from the due date was yours born?
⁉️ Have you shared the exact date of your due date? (Or better not 😭😭 ?!, people might become a little annoying about it when the date is approaching 🤫…).
