What would you like to do?
I'm guessing that you mean at 44weeks gestation - i.e. a month 'overdue'. While it's not common for caregivers to be comfortable witha woman continuing beyond 41-42 weeks gestation, due to fears of the placenta becoming less efficient and potentially compromising baby's well-being, it is a woman's choice whether to be medically induced or not. There are certainly historical cases of woman carrying babies well beyond their due dates. Another thing to consider is whether the woman's normal menstrual cycle is particularly long (the average is 28 days) - if so this will have affected the conception date, and therefore while her official due date calculated by her last period may in fact be a couple of weeks out... so that 44 week baby may in fact be right on time! This is particularly relevant if the woman chose not to have an ultrasoun scan during the pregnancy, which provides information on dating the pregnancy.

Yes, if proper care is taken
With proper neonatal care, a baby born at 29 weeks has a good chance of living a healthy life. However, each case is different as per each baby's different circumstances, …and usual results may not always be what happens in each case.
At 32weeks 85% of infants survive. They still need a lot of help and will usually stay in the NICU until the original due date. They can have learning problems and development…al delays caused by prematurity.
Yes. Babies born after 36 weeks gestation are considered full term and are usually just fine.
Highly likely - due to advances in medicine and post-natal care. Babies have been born much earlier and still survived. yes but they are considered premature.
266,000,0 babies are born in a week
no they can not be born in 28 weeks that would be weird
About 2.6 million babies are born in the world each week and about 1 million people die.
It wont be something wrong with it because it's born after 42 weeks instead of 40. Might be bigger that's all. Most women go over the expected date.
Absolutely. After 7th month onwards the baby is just growing inside the womb and does not really lack any critical organ development.
Yes. At 36 weeks a baby is fully developed. He/she may be a little lighter than the majority of babies who are born. However, there should not be any problems. It should not m…ean that you and your baby have to stay in the hospital any longer.
A baby can be born at 18 weeks. However, he/she would not live. The earliest a baby could survive outside the womb is 21 weeks, and this is very, very rare.
Around 42,000 babies are born in Mexico each week (2.18 million per year)
One of the most common causes of premature birth is that the mother has pre-eclampsia, the only way to cure it is by delivering the baby. The mother or baby may have an infect…ion which triggers premature labor. The cervix can open slightly and allow the waters to break, so an open pathway for infection means the baby has to be delivered. The baby may have a condition which can only be treated once it is born, or the treatment may trigger premature labor. In a multiple pregnancy babies often just run out of room and have to be delivered, also a multiple pregnancy may trigger pre-eclampsia. Often no one knows is the answer.
