Advanced Maternal Age-39 Week Induction


My OB hasn’t had any conversation with me about my delivery, which I’m assuming because it is still a few months away. However, I know that in the last year or two, a lot of information has come out in favor of inducing AMA, but especially 40+, moms at 39 weeks. This apparently reduces the risk of stillbirth, placenta issues and c-sections.

I am planning on addressing this with my OB at my next appointment on Tuesday, but I was wondering if your OBs had mentioned this to you? What are your thoughts on this?
