With the celebration of Mother’s Day approaching, HCA wants to make sure that moms-to-be have the best information to make the right choice for the newest members of their families. Providing valuable information is just one part of our role as a trusted partner through the journey of motherhood.

As a mom, I know that having a baby is an exciting time in a woman’s life, but it is also important to be aware of the benefits of carrying to 39 weeks. HCA and March of Dimes studies have shown that waiting until at least 39 weeks, when possible, helps provide the best start in life for little ones. Our advice is if given the choice to schedule, wait and let nature take its course.

Here’s more from my discussion with Shawn Tempesta on “The Morning Blend” on KTNV Channel 13 in Las Vegas.

Happy Mother’s Day!
