What caught my attention here was "later delivery."

Does not the word EKTRWMA denote an "early" something,
whether a premature birth, miscarriage, stillborn, or abortion.

I do note that BDAG suggests a "later" idea here as well, but where
are the references to support that. Does this word ever denote
a "later" anything?
