Abstract

Objective: We sought to determine when rates of maternal pregnancy complications increase for low-risk nulliparous and multiparous women at term. Methods: We designed a retrospective cohort study of low-risk women delivered beyond 37 weeks gestational age from 1976 to 2001. Rates of mode of delivery and maternal complications of labor and delivery were examined by gestational age with both bivariate and multivariate analyses. Statistical significance was designated by P
