Abstract:

An accurate estimation of gestational age is key in planning and providing care for the neonate. Understanding fetal growth patterns and the neonates gestational age help the provider identify and plan for those at risk. Gestational age can help determine morbidity and mortality and direct providers in advising families regarding plan of care. Finally, accurate gestational age determination guides research and application to clinical practice. In this module we define frequently used terminology when discussing gestational age, list the primary features and describe the process of determining gestational age.
