When are babies born?
In most cases, babies are born from the start of the 37th week up until the end of the 41st week of the gestation period. This would be the 10th lunar month or the 9th calendar month of pregnancy. Babies born before the 37th week are considered prematurely born, while those born after the 41st week fall under post-term pregnancy.
How are babies delivered?
Most babies are delivered naturally through the vagina, while some have to undergo the cesarean section (C-section) – a surgical procedure in which the doctor opens the belly of the mother to deliver the child. This method is only used when the baby cannot be born through the vagina, due to possible danger either to the mother or child.
