Okay so I am a new mother- I am due on Sept 18th. I was wondering what peoples intakes are on inducing labor?
I will tell you my experience. I was induced both times with my children and didn't have any issues at all. Although they both were fairly easy labors and delivieries, my second child was way easier than my first and I actually thought having dental work was worse than labor, for me.
ive had natural birth and induced birth and I will never again do induction. My second I had very bad preterm labor so they choseat 35ish weeks to induce labor because I was already 41/2 cm an my water hadnt broke yet so they took me in an induced me nad I hated it and will never do it agian unless its a llife or death situation. my first was natural birth and I went in tolanor an every thing on my own and it was peaceful easy going which is completly opposite of my last :O) GL though I think it depends ons the person
My first 4 babies were all inductions - I LOVED them. Always knew how to plan (which was especially important once we had 2...3 kids at home). I knew I'd have time to get an epidural (something I never intended to go thorugh labor without). Each one was an all-around great experience.
My 5th baby had a mind of his own -- he decided to come in an insanely fast labor/delivery the evening before I was scheduled to be induced! He certainly turned our wolrd on its end!
I was induced... I caught alot of crap from people for doing it but my labor and delivery was great! I was only in hard labor for about 3 hours.
My opinion is that induction should be avoided unless there is a valid medical reason for it. "I'm tired of being pregnant." or "It's close enough." or "The baby is big." are not valid reasons, in my opinion.
