Pregnancy and Delivery Reports

Deliveries scheduled 1-3 weeks early when not medically necessary

Lawrence Memorial Hospital 10%
Kansas Average 8%
National Average 5%

Lower percentages are better.

Why is this important?

Delivery after the 39th completed week of pregnancy is recommended due to the important fetal development that takes place the last few weeks of pregnancy.
