Every hospital keeps this kind of data, and you could ask what the figures are for your hospital. You may be able to obtain national figures by contacting the Office of National Statistics www.statistics.gov.uk. It certainly isn’t the case that all first babies are late. However, from the point of view of actually waiting, if you approach the end of your pregnancy expecting your baby to be a couple of weeks late, then you’ll avoid the ‘sitting around waiting’, which from personal experience I can tell you is very frustrating – and you may be pleasantly surprised!
