The March of Dimes Minnesota Chapter and the Minnesota Department of Health share this message from Dr. Ed Ehlinger on why the last weeks of pregnancy count. If possible, it's best to stay pregnant for at least 39 weeks and to let labor begin on its own.

There are lots of important things happening to your baby in the last few weeks of pregnancy. For example, your baby's brain and lungs are still growing.

You might not have a choice about when to have your baby. If there are problems with your pregnancy or your baby's health, you may need to have your baby earlier. But if you have a choice and you're planning to schedule your baby's birth, wait until at least 39 weeks. Learn more www.marchofdimes.com/39weeks
