Estimated date of confinement
Origins of the term
Confinement is a traditional term referring to the period of pregnancy whereby a woman would be confined to bed (in an effort to reduce risk of premature delivery). Except in threatened pregnancies (for example, in pre-eclampsia), this is no longer a part of antenatal care.
