Evidence Based Birth®
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?
