i have 4 children pregnant with number 5 and had two spontanious labours and two inductions. I myself would prefer my body do it itself but sometime things happen and induction is the only way and the two i had induced only lasted 12 hours and 5 hours my two natural were 12 hours and 29 hours so think there are good and bad in both xx

Don't listen to everyone that is saying that they lead to c-sections...my doctor told me that is not true...it just all depends on the persons uh ndividual experience...there is no proof, things happen and like I said everyone is different

You're stupid and so is your doctor. Considering a greater number of csections are done on women who've been induced vs who haven't proves that. Numbers don't lie.

First of all in never said that it will make him fit...BUT that doesn't mean that he won't either...I've heard many situations where the baby dropped and fit right at labor whether it was natural or by induction...anything can happen they can't tell until labor is actually happen!

No one said they indefinitely lead to c sections, we said getting and induction ups the risk of needing one. and im sure you've read the thread- induction stopped my daughters heart and gave another woman a stroke. you wouldnt take those chances if it were any other situation, so why would you take that chance when your child is involved? just because you're tired of being pregnant? because your doctor wants to control your labor and delivery? hell, ive seen a few women excited about getting inductions because they got to pick their kid's birthday.

I would really like to go into labor on my own just because from what I've experienced and what I've been told is that when induced contractions hurt worse than going on my own so I would like to experience it on my own. I lasted till I was dilated to an 8 with my son before I got an epidural do maybe if I go on my own I won't want an epi. But who knows I just don't want to go over 41 cause I don't want to go through why I did with my daughter....

Don't call me stupid, you don't know me, that is one of the meanest things to say to sometime, shows what kind of character you are! you have to call people names to try and prove a point, smh...and no my doctors are not stupid...they all go to school for a long time I'm pretty sure they know what they are talking about!!

Even with my induction, the only reason I took the epi was because I couldnt relax enough to let myself progress. I was stuck at 4 cm. lol Those things are a life saver. lol

My husband doesn't want me to get one with this baby. He doesn't like them just because of the chances they carry along with em. But I guess it just depends on what happens

Well when its you're first baby and you have to trust your doctor iy can get confusing...I hear bad things can happen if you go too late, i don't want an induction cause "im tired of being pregnant" because frankly ink not tired of being pregnant! I want to let things happen naturally but also if the doctor really does indeed show proof or real concern that in should get a c-section or induction, then I feel i need to put trust in them because like i said this is my first and I just want the best for my baby and my doctor should know these things...sure i can suggest what i want to happen but I'm not a doctor and i just want my baby here safely whatever that way may be

If you can do it without one, go for it, but aint no damn way a man understands the pain a woman goes through during labor. lol

Of course you should trust your doctor, but that doesnt mean you shouldnt do research of your own.

They have a midwife where I live but she wasnt taking any one new and they toss you to other docs in her office, that's why I decided to go to the town I lived in before.
