Late preterm and early term infants are at higher risk for short-term and long-term morbidities and mortality than term infants. Such outcomes are influenced by many factors, the strongest of which is gestational age. Counseling and educating women and families about risks of late preterm and early term births is helpful for timing and route of delivery, managing the pregnancy and infant, and prognosticating outcomes for infants.
