In this episode I am joined by Erin Wilson, MPH, a research editor at Evidence Based Birth
, to discuss the latest research on Big Babies. In this episode, we cover:
What is considered a "big" baby?
- Can we accurately predict if a baby will be born big?
- Does it really matter if a baby is born big? What are the risks?
- Could suspecting that you're pregnant with a big baby be more harmful than helpful?
- Is early induction beneficial for big babies?
You can access all of the references for this podcast, as well as a full-length Signature Article and one-page handout on Big Babies by visiting ebbirth.com/bigbaby. Don't forget that we also have several resources for people who are pregnant with gestational diabetes:
