Actual Primary Completion Date : June 2016
Actual Study Completion Date : August 2016

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Prolonged pregnancy
Pregnancies with 41 weeks or more of gestation determined by a reliable last menstrual period or early fetal ultrasound.
Procedure: Cervical length measurement
Vaginal ultrasound to measure cervical length previous to use of prostaglandins.
