The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (Year 2013) endorse and encourage the uniform use of new gestational age designations by all clinicians.

Recommended Designations according to the gestational age are -

  • Late preterm  : 34 0/7weeks through 36 6/7weeks
  • Early term      : 37 0/7weeks through 38 6/7weeks
  • Full term        : 39 0/7weeks through 40 6/7weeks
  • Late term       : 41 0/7weeks through 41 6/7weeks
  • Post-term      : 42 0/7 weeks and beyond

Research has shown that neonatal outcomes, especially respiratory morbidity, vary depending on the gestational age at time of birth.
