Abstract

Summary

Post‐term pregnancy, defined as a pregnancy that extends to 42 weeks 0 days and beyond or a gestational length of 294 days or more, occurs in 5–10% of all births. Post‐term pregnancy has been associated with maternal and perinatal risks including postpartum hemorrhage, cephalopelvic disproportion, cesarean delivery, oligohydramnios, macrosomia, intrauterine growth restriction, and intrauterine fetal demise. Management strategies have been developed to evaluate and plan delivery for the post‐term pregnancy.
