Hi,

So I have a pregnant patient that is 33 weeks and the baby is weighting heavier than normal, they are using a P08.1 code but this says not to use on a maternal record only newborn. Do I need to code that the baby is weighing heavy if she hasn't delivered yet?

Thanks

There are codes in the O36.6- range for the maternal care for large-for-date fetal growth that are appropriate for this situation.
