Hi, the due date is calculated from the beginning of the cycle in which you cinveived so 1st day of the period is used as this is the beginning of the cycle.
My midwife took my first date of last period (12/march/15) and counted 9 calender months and added 7 days so my due date was 19/December/15.
This was confirmed by the scan! Although scan confirmed dates can vary due to later ovulation or implantation, its only usually by a couple of days either way.
Hope this helps x
