Does anybody have a link to this? People talk about it and I've heard doctors at the hospital talk about it but I can't find an official link online about it. I wanted to show it to somebody.

Its something march of dimes started. Its for non-medical issues. From what I understand, you or your OB cant schedule induction before 39 weeks for convenience any more.

My hospital has had that policy for a while now. I don't know if it's a state wide thing or not though.

Yes they are amazing for doing that. I'm glad they did. Personally I think it should be longer than that but 39 is a whole lot better than nothing!



They talk about it like it's a state law that like every state has passed. But I wasn't sure if it was just a policy or an actual law.
