Mothers development

A week has passed from the estimated delivery date.

If you have a feeling of resignation and restlessness, these are common feelings. Keep reminding yourself that you will soon meet your child!

If you have not already been to a prolonged pregnancy checkup, you will probably attend one soon. At this examination, medical staff will ensure that all is well with both you and the child.

Always call the maternity ward if:

  • your water breaks
  • you have three contractions within 10 minutes (two if you have been through labour before)
  • you are bleeding
  • you experience decreased or complete lack of fetus movements
  • you feel scared or insecure
