Scheduling births may be convenient for physicians, hospitals, and expectant parents; BUT it is generally not good for the health of mothers and babies. It is also very expensive.
In Wyoming, one in ten of our babies are born too soon. Many of these babies must be transferred out of state to receive the intensive care that they need. Premature birth is the leading cause of infant mortality and for many of them that survive, they suffer with life-long disabilities. The average cost for a preterm birth is more than ten times that of a healthy baby.
The optimal time for a baby to be born is after 39 gestational weeks. Infants born prior to 39 weeks, including those born 37-38 weeks, are at an increased risk of adverse outcomes including admission to a neonatal intensive care unit. These outcomes and associated complications can result in dramatic cost increase. Infant mortality is also higher for infants born before 39 weeks.
