Compared to term infants, late preterm infants are at higher risk of developing more medical complications leading to higher mortality and morbidity, and have higher hospital re-admission rates in the first few months of life. The Georgia OBGyn Society believes that OBs should take a voluntary proactive stance to decrease elective, non-medically necessary late preterm deliveries prior to 39 weeks in the best interest of our pregnant women and newborns. Here are a few resources to help educate your patients on the importance of waiting full term for a healthy baby. You are welcome to download and print the poster.
