Abstract

According to this study:

 

* Only about 20% of women who are told that their babies may be large (8 lbs. or more) actually deliver large babies.

 

* Communicating concerns about fetal size to parents influences their perceptions about the pregnancy and leads to greater use of perinatal interventions, including medically induced labor or attempts at self-induced labor and planned cesarean section.
