"Let Baby Set the Delivery Date" Infographic (600px x 1243px)

Title is "Let Baby Set the Delivery Date"
 Babies need at least 39 weeks to grow before they are born.
 Illustration of a pregnant woman in profile says "39 weeks? But I'm ready to deliver now!"
 Between 37 and 39 weeks, the baby goes through critical development of the brain, lungs, and liver.
 Your baby's brain at 35 weeks weighs only 2/3 of what it will weigh at 39 to 40 weeks. (Adapted from material developed by the March of Dimes.)
 Babies born before 39 weeks have a 20% greater risk of complications than babies born later, including problems with breathing, temperature, and feeding.
 One more reason to wait: your due date could be off by 2 weeks, which means if you have your baby before 39 weeks you could be delivering early!
 Elective delivery prior to 39 weeks increases the mom's risk of postpartum depression, stronger and more frequent contractions, and the need for a cesarean delivery.
