Reducing Early Elective Deliveries

Rely on Genesis to support healthy growth and development by encouraging you to wait until the 39th completed week of pregnancy to deliver your baby, unless there’s a medical reason to deliver early.

When you avoid an early elective delivery, you and your baby are less likely to experience complications or an extended hospital stay.
