I was induced for no medical reason whatsoever, doc told me to go in to have an induction. The night before the induction and birth, he put a balloon type thing up there and inflated it to make my cervix 'more favorable for induction'..and I delivered vaginally. Was just curious to know if this always happens prior to being induced and, if not, could it help the mom NOT have a C-section?
I just ran and looked it was a foley cathiter your doctor used, the ballon thing. apparently its not something they do that often though.
