Understanding “Big Babies” with Rebecca Dekker

A “big baby” is one of the top reasons for a suggested induction for pregnant people. But did you know that ultrasound offers less accuracy after the 37th week of pregnancy and can be off up to 15% of the estimated weight? 


In this episode of Yoga | Birth | Babies I speak with founder and author of Evidence Based Birth®, Rebecca L. Dekker, PhD, RN, APRN. Rebecca and I had a chance to speak about a problem many pregnant people face towards the end of their pregnancy, macrosomia, also know as “big babies.” This important conversation helps break through myths and common concerns of birthing a big baby. Rebecca also give sound advice to those who may face this issue as well as great tools for birth workers to discuss with their clients.
