Possible comparison data for All Blacks in NC:Note: There is discussion among partners regarding this measure of "healthy delivery" being 40 weeks gestation as opposed to 37 weeks, which is considered "full term" by some practitioners and national standards (39-40 6/7ths weeks according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists). The Mothering Asheville data team has researched the raw data and adjusted the way this performance measure is reported to reflect "full term" as 37+ weeks.
