What is an estimated due date, and how is it determined? What are the risks of going past
your due date? Does induction increase the risk of Cesarean? At which point do the benefits
of being electively induced outweigh the risks? Does a person’s goals and preferences for their
birth matter?
The purpose of this Evidence Based Birth® article is to look at the evidence on due dates.


On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Discuss how “Due Dates” are calculated and the accuracy of these calculations

2. Describe the risks of going past “due”

3. Review the evidence on benefits and risks of induction versus waiting for labor

4. Describe the epidemiology and history of pregnancy in women 35 or older

5. Discuss the benefits and risks associated with being pregnant ≥ 35 years

6. Describe the evidence on elective induction and Cesarean for women ≥ 35 years

7. Discuss fetal testing in relation to advanced maternal age

Hello! My name is Rebecca Dekker, and I am a nurse with my PhD and the founder of Evidence Based Birth®.

For decades, the vast majority of birth research evidence has been locked away in medical journals. I believe in putting the evidence back in the hands of the people who need it the most: birthing people and their and families.

In 2012, I embarked on a mission to create a trusted, non-biased source for the most current, evidence-based information on pregnancy and childbirth. This project came to be known as Evidence Based Birth®.

If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, Evidence Based Birth® gives you a starting point to find evidence about your options during childbirth, and a way to start conversations with your healthcare providers about those options. Our free, evidence-based printables are written in the language of your providers, but so that you and your significant others can understand, too.

Whether you are trying to find information on big babies, advanced maternal age, or newborn procedures, Evidence Based Birth® provides you with an in-depth look at the research evidence in language that you can understand. We specialize in breaking down complex topics and making them easy for you to learn.

If you are a maternity health care provider or birth professional, Evidence Based Birth® is your new go-to source for find unbiased, fact-based information to inform your practice. And if you are looking for continuing education, Evidence Based Birth® is a place to earn contact hours that will help you support your clients and patients with the highest quality, most relevant information about maternity care practices.
