Percent Of Babys Born On Due Date

what percent of babys are due on the due date? what is the average number of days before or after the due date most babys are born?

 

tiffany - April 15

the percent is 50

 

flea - May 3

I believe it is actually only 2% born on their due date, no way it is 50%. Most babies are born within 10 days either side of the estimated due date.

 

Maggie - May 11

My doctor told me the same thing flea said

 

danielle - May 16

I would say that because the due date is only a mere estimate, going off a date of menstration, that not only is is most of the time incorrect, but that the likely hood that the child is actually born on that given date, is around 7 or 8%. Due to the fact that most babys are born within 2 weeks of the date, either 2 weeks early, or 2 weeks later.The only reason given for such an estimate is so that the parents are given a time frame to prepare in...

i think an ultrasound will give you a pretty accurate due date and not to really go by the last date of your period.i i my first child due date was only 6days off.

my doctor said its 2% of babies born on their due date. my first son was born on his due date and my second was born 5 days early. now i am on my 3rd due in july

 

Ms. Star - February 4

I believe it is 2% too. My first was born 10 days before her due date, my second was 6 days before and this one is due tomorrow so he is the close so far... Wish me luck...

 

~L~ - February 18

Yes, 2% on the actual due date, then 49% before and 49% after. All 3 of mine were early.
