Ultrasound estimate of fetal weight may be less accurate than estimates by multiparous patients and clinicians using Leopold maneuvers.[2] Ultrasound prediction of EFW in babies 4500 g or larger can be off by as much as 13%.[1] The purpose of induction for fetal macrosomia would be to prevent maternal and neonatal morbidities.
