  • I was induced and I didn't have a c-section. And 4 out of 5 of my friends that were induced DID NOT have c-sections.

  • i was induced at 40 weeks and 1 day. I had a wonderful birth. It was smooth and calm... no rushing to the hospitla in pain. I sat there all settled in when i went into labor. I would recomend this to anyone personally. I loved it. I felt in control. I never got close to having a c-section. The only thing that wasnt that fun was that i felt like i was in the hospital forever before i gave birth because they made me come in 12 hours before they gave be potcin so they could insert some kind of "tampon looking thing" to soffen my cervix. anywayssss im rambling bottom line i loved it and hope for the same situation if i ever have another child. Relax and your body will take over

  • exactly, you dont HAVE to be induced just because youre a week or even 2 or 3 weeks overdue. Its YOUR body, YOUR baby. YOU decide whats best.

    If you get induced, your chances of a c-section shoot up to well over 50%.
