My husband's co-worker's wife just had a baby yesterday. She was "overdue" (2 days past EDD) and went in for an induction, and surprise, ended up with a c-section.
It's funny because I've only met her once, but I am so irritated that she had the section! Her OB must be pretty pro-intervention, because she had an appointment on her EDD and he offered (!) to induce to her that day. sigh. It seems so obvious to me that birth is so much simpler than that.
My husband asked his co-worker last week if his wife was interested in natural birth, and he said "Well she's not planning a waterbirth or anything weird like that" lol good thing my husband hadn't shared much about our views on birth!
