No, not at all! The due date is simply an estimation and it’s very normal for babies to be born before this date or after this date. In fact, only about 5% of babies are born on their exact due dates!

Babies can be born before or after their due date for various reasons. Some factor influencing the timing of birth include the accuracy of the due date calculation, medical conditions, complications during pregnancy, inductions, and spontaneous labor.
