  • Never ever be induced again. they up the odds of a c-sec tremendously and make contractions WAY stronger. Induction should NEVER be used because of Mom or doc's impatience.

  • I would rather be induced honestly.

  • Naturally. Induction is risky/scary business!

  • I work for an OBGYN and I can honestly say I will never have an induction. Even if I have to carry that baby untill it's a toddler. When you go into labour naturally, your contractions start slowly and at a low intensity level. Your body has time to adapt as the pain slowly increases. When you are induced your contractions start at a high intensity level and increases rapidly. As a result your labour is more painful.

  • Definitely naturally! The baby will come when it's ready.

  • Honestly induced. I've had three successful inductions that ended in vaginal delivery. I have a low pain tolerance so I got the epidural.

  • I liked it when I went into labor naturally as oppose to having help.

  • I HAD to be induced with both of my children. Wished I could have gone natural.

  • I would only be induced if it was literally a life or death situation. I had to fight with my OB and all the nurses at the hospital over that.

  • Naturally. But, that's all I know. I never experienced induction.
