I think any woman who.....

 I think that women who induce or choose a csection that is not medically necessary are selfish and unintelligent. I have 2 friends who have made this decision recently. One has already given birth and her child ended up having breathing issues and had a long stay in the hospital. If she had simply waited until he was ready, he would have had no issues. The other is due in a couple of months and is already complaining about how uncomfortable she is and that she is setting the date for her induction 2 weeks before she is freaking due. All because she is uncomfortable. That is pure selfishness. As mothers, we should be looking out for the well-being of our children, not our own comfort. I understand that sometimes induction and csection are needed and I praise God that we have the technology that we do for when it is necessary, but for the majority of pregnancies, they are not necessary.

While it does seem unnecessary to you it's their body and their baby so it's their business. My friend was induced Monday but she was a week and a half over due.

Agreed. It's ridiculous that we can't even let nature take its course when doing the most basic of human things.

 I think it's sad too. I was offered an induction at 39.5 weeks, since I had been in so much pain for many weeks. But I said no, and waited it out past my due date. Then had a wonderful drug-free birth.

I was induced and had a c-section but both were not my choice

I was a day away from 42 weeks pregnant

I was not softening effacing or dilating

And the c-section was because dd's heart

Do you feel I was being selfish?

I'm sure that the doctor wouldn't induce someone before it was safe to do so.
