Hello, I'm 41 and due to have first child in a few months. I am at UCH and was advised that I would be induced or elective CS by 40 weeks. I've asked can it even be earlier due to the risks and they said it could be 39+3/4, but not earlier as best practice shows babies do much better the closer they are to due date (ie breathing). I'd still rather have a live baby with breathing problems than none at all! The hormones have made me crazy anxious in this pregnancy.....just wanting to touch base with others in the same situation, including it being first child!
