How to Have a Healthy Pregnancy

Touro is proud to support the AWHONN’s 40 reasons to go 40 campaign, educating families on the importance of 40 weeks gestation. 

Your baby needs a full 40 weeks of pregnancy to grow and develop. Inducing labor during those last few weeks of pregnancy is associated with increased risks, including: prematurity, cesarean surgery, hemorrhage, and infection. Labor should be induced for medical reasons, not for convenience of scheduling concerns. Baby will let you know when he or she is ready to emerge. Until then, click below for 40 reasons to go at least the full 40 weeks of pregnancy:
