You're probably lucky they didn't induce you. 44% of moms induced end up with a c-section. This is from a CNN article on 5 ways to avoid a c-section. I'm guessing it's not a medically indicated induction or it would have been more of a priority...
1. Don't get induced unless medically necessary
Years of study have shown that inducing labor often leads to a C-section.
"Klein says studies of first-time moms show that 44 percent of those who are induced end up with a C-section but that only 8 percent of those who go into labor spontaneously end up with a C-section. Doctors say many times, inducing women way before the cervix is ready can lead to unproductive labor, which then necessitates a C-section.
