Although post-term pregnancy is associated with an increased incidence of fetal distress, oligohydramnios, fetal macrosomia, fetal dysmaturity, and perinatal mortality, as many as 80% of post-term fetuses appear completely normal. The authors of this article discuss the three sub-groups of post-term pregnancies, and deal with the diagnosis and antepartum and intrapartum management of the condition. Recommendations and a protocol for management are provided.
