You're tied to the bed most of the time.

You're constantly hooked up to monitors.

No option at all of an IV or not.

High csection rate.

Possibility of caving in and getting an epidural which raises your risk of csection again.

None of the methods (pitocin, cytotec, etc) are NOT FDA approved for induction.

I agree with all of the above.

Plus being induced is sometimes a harder faster labor & that's harder in your body & baby.

The rush of a csection is much greater!

Baby is usually not done "baking" and so his/her chances of being separated from you are greater.

I had to be induced with all three of mine. My water broke but I was not going into labor and that runs a large risk of infection and if not induced a c section would be necessary and not a maybe.

All three if my children were delivered vaginally. At no point in any of the the three labors were a c section brought up. I think that the reason for the induction is a big factor.

I have no non induced labor to compare to so as for pain and that stuff i cannot say. My longest labor was my first. Went in pitocin around noon and baby born at 10pm. Now jot contractions until around 5pm. Second got pit around noon and she was born 6pm and third got pit around 2pm and he was born 8:30pm.

Risk of csection goes up 50%. Pitocen induced contractions are much harder on baby and more painful for mom. Baby is more likely to suffer from jaundice, have feeding issues. Late preterm baby's have many risks.

When baby is fully ready, lungs done they release a hormone that starts labor. Not allowing for that increases risk for asthma and other breathing problems.

So much info at your fingertips on this, just google for it. Here is a link I want to share http://www.marchofdimes.com/pregnancy/induction-by-request.aspx

I was induced with my first because my water broke and labor didn't start. However, since then I have learned so much more. The risk of infection goes way up, but mainly because of the constant checking for dilation. Every single time anything is inserted in your vagina, the risk goes up. I know women who had their water break and didn't go into labor for one and even two days . As long as baby is fine, there are n ointernal checks, and no signs of infection ,you CaN wait!

I was induced with three and had three with no drugs. Being induced is different for every woman . For me, it was the most excruciating, painful experience of my life. I felt like I was being torn apart. There was no relief fro mthe pain even after my son was born. Because of that ,I vowed to get an epidural if induced again (first time was pain med free). Second time the epidural was not done properly, but it did help. Recovery was better, but still slow. Third time, epidural worked, and I HATED it. Couldn't feel a thing.

Next three were drug free and great! The pain was manageable, labor was faster, recovery was muc hfaster!!

I was induced, it was a long process and it was a difficult labor (my son kept turning), but I would do it again in a second.  I was induced a week early and had a healthy baby boy.  My reason for being induced was that my baby was measuring big and my fluid was low.  I wouldn't say anyone should elect to have it done without a reason, but I had no problems with it at all and I liked how everything was ready for me when I got to the hospital and my OB was available because it was scheduled, I've heard of people having to be delivered by a different doctor, or of not having a chance to get pain medications before the baby comes, there are advantages to knowing exactly when you're going to start labor.
