why is it

that there are so many women who say drs try to make them be induced or c-sec. just because?
I've been to many doctors, and they all say that they would never do that. Along with all my friends.

I understand dr.'s might be joking around during holiday seasons because of the holiday, but i don't think that they would actually tell you ' i don't want to be on call for you from x/xx to x/xx because i have more important things to do'. you know?

I don't know. maybe i just got lucky, and never had to deal with anyone like this. .

  • My dr induced with my first son because he was a week late and i begged him to get the bugger out. The c-section with him was emergency, so there was no planning that. My second son was 2 wks early and born via c-section (planned, but he wanted out early). And that's because my dr doesn't do VBAC unless you REALLY push him and he informs you of all the risks.

  • i was induced with my second because my first labor was so fast and with the distance I would have to drive to the hospital the dr. was worried that I wouldn't make it to the hospital on time.

  • My Doctor did induce me with my first two days before Christmas. He was going out of town for a week and I had already gone in to preterm labor earlier that month which they had stopped. He didn't want me delivering while he was gone.
