Regarding this, how long after due date is safe?
There's no clear answer to how long apregnancycan safely go. Some Ob/Gyns are comfortable lettinga womango one week past her due date, and others may let hergo twoweeks past her due date.
Similarly, is 42 weeks pregnant dangerous? Overdue babies are at higher risk of healthproblems,research suggests. A study found babies born after 42weekswere more likely to suffer behavioural problems such asADHD inearly life. Most UK mothers are induced before 42weeks butpregnancies lasting beyond 43 weeks arenotunknown.
In this way, is it dangerous to go past your due date?
The Risks of Going Past Due Date Only about 1 out of every 10 babies isofficiallyoverdue, which means that the baby is born after 42 weeksofpregnancy. Recent research has shown that delivery after 40weeksmay come with certain risks, and OB-GYNshaveresponded.
