This information card describes the Is It Worth It? Initiative, which aims to reduce the number of non-medically indicated deliveries before 39 weeks of pregnancy. Is It Worth It? is from the NICHD National Child and Maternal Health Education Program, a coalition of more than 30 of the nation's leading organizations and agencies that focus on maternal and child health. The postcard explains the importance of waiting until at least 39 weeks of pregnancy to deliver if the mother or child's health is not in danger.
