I was induced at 39 wks with my daughter because I was miserable & stressed to the max as I had a horrible rash from head to toe called pupps from the hormones & the second she was born it was gone so I was thanking God for pitocin! I was scratching myself silly for 2 weeks & had scabs on my arms & legs it was horrible!

Paciencia y respeto a los procesos naturales, esperar a que el trabajo de parto inice por si mismo es mejor opcion en salud para las mamas y los bebes sanos.

I am on my 40 week and I can wait until my baby girl wants to come. If she is too comfy it is for a reason, if it is passed the 41 week then we will do all natural ways to poke her and remind her that we are ready to meet her and see her!

Absolutely! Although I was induced on my first, after I was two weeks late and walked around dilated to 4 without any sign of contractions! Umbilical issues ended in C-section, :-(! But my second was born Vbac, with no problems 20 1/2 months later.

The best outcomes for our babies is to enable labour to occur between 39-42 weeks. Time to stop intervening!

Dear Ol' Prof Winston et al state that human babies are born 3 months premature anyway (cranial-pelvic ratios) so our babies are the most helpless & vulnerable as newborns compared to many species.
