Pregnancy test

Use our simple pregnancy due date calculator to estimate the date of your baby's arrival. Enter your information below to find out when you could 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.

Only about four percent of babies are born on their 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.

Naturally you've got lots of questions. Take a look at our information on being pregnant, where you will find essential, evidenced-based information designed to help you make the best decisions for you and your baby.
