Description:
It wouldn't let me add any other answers, but of coarse, another option would be c-section all the way. I'm sure there are also other ways to labor/deliver, if you choose other please elaborate.

I am wanting to get a good grasp of what others have gone through. Specifically how many women were induced, and ended up with a c-section...

Thanks for any help!

    My labor started naturally at 41 weeks and 1 day. I had a 100% natural water birth.

    I had a 100% natural water birth as well. I was at a birth center with midwives. Next time, I will have a homebirth. :)

    first baby wasnt induced my water broke at home but got an epidural at hospital her birth took 8 hrs my 2nd baby I was dilated to a 4 but wouldnt progress so they gave me pit broke my water and gave me an epidural her birth took 1hr 44 min
    I count labor starting at when my water was broke because I dont feel contractions very much before then for some reason.

    Labor stated naturally, after like and hour or two, doc decided I wasn't moving fast enough for him even though I was 5 or 6 cms. He gave me pitocin and broke my water. (I was young and dumb or most of this wouldn't have happened). This was at about 4. I had been in labor since 12. I finally had a nurse ask if I felt pressure, I did. Doc came in, I "purple pushed" 2.5 times and had my son at 7. So, 7 hours of un-epi labor.

    I was in labor when I arrived, was induced, had an epi (twice), tried to deliver vaginally, and after 50+ hrs had an emergency C.

    2 planned c-sections b/c of medical condition.

    My daughter was breech, so I had a scheduled c-section one week before my due date.

    I was induced 1 day early. Got an epidural and delivered within 2 hours of when my water broke. It was an easy labor. I was already having small contractions on my own and was progressing along, so I am sure that helped.

    I started out being induced at 33 weeks due to severe preeclampsia. The drugs caused fetal distress, so I ended up having a c-section.
