Hi Madhuri
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
There could many reasons for that.It is not compulsory that one should deliver at 36 weeks .There are women who carry pregnancy till 40 weeks also.It could be possible that her dates are wrongly calculated.It is recommended for her to get a check up done and be in reach of medical help , as she can expect signs of delivery anytime.
Take care.
