Use our simple pregnancy due date calculator to estimate the date of your baby's arrival. Enter your information below to find out approximately when you will give birth.
When you find out you're pregnant, one of the first things you'll probably wonder is 'when will my baby be born?'. Our due date calculator will give you an approximate date for the arrival of your baby.
Your pregnancy due date is calculated from the first day of your last period, and it's assumed you conceived halfway between periods. If you conceived earlier or later in your cycle then this will probably effect your due date.
To give you a more accurate baby due date, your midwife will offer you a dating scan as part of your antenatal care.
So if you're ready to estimate your due date, select the date of the first day of your last period and the normal length of your period in our pregnancy calculator, then click on Calculate.
Now's the ideal time to sign up for our free Pregnancy & Baby newsletter. Our weekly email update delivers expert information about what to expect when, your baby's development and your health and well-being, right to your in-box.
