What do you think?

I am personally ecstatic.  The tide is turning in favor of maternal and fetal health, rather than convenience and doctor preference.  This marks an important milestone for women's health.

Actually full term is 37-42 weeks. I still don't think there should be elective inductions at all. I don't really agree with elective sections but if they are going to be done they should wait until the mom in in labor...that way they know the baby is ready.
