I think a lot of those women are misunderstood. Like another said that's "near term" and doesnt' mean baby is ready, even if he/she comes on their own. Here it's 38-42 weeks is term. My MW does deliver at 37 weeks, but I don't know if I'd be comfortable with that. My son came at 39 weeks 3 days, 8lbs and was pink when he came out and breathing.
