Abstract

Postterm pregnancy, defined as a pregnancy extended to or beyond 42 weeks, is associated with increased perinatal morbidity and mortality. The risk of adverse perinatal outcome increases gradually after 40 weeks, even though favorable perinatal outcomes between 40 and 42 weeks are good in high-resource settings.
