The usual practice of doctors handling uncomplicated pregnancies has been to induce labor only after reaching the full-term 40-week mark, and many do not induce until 41 weeks. The thought was that inducing labor increases the risk of complications. A new study suggests that thought might be wrong, and it is actually better to induce earlier-at 39 weeks. If you are pregnant and approaching 39 weeks, talk to your doctor about this new study.
