Babies come when they're ready. You may want to read this handy Pitocin label I came across before wanting/agreeing to be induced

Some women HAVE to be induced for the safety of them and their child. All medications have side effects.

A lot of women are induced though just because.

Yes, they are, i'm not arguing that point in the slightest.
But OP also said before agreeing to an induction. Some women don't have a choice, and to scare them with this kind of thing is senseless KWIM?

Quoting Jas ♥:" Clearly this doesn't apply to medical inductions. She's obviously talking about those women who choose to be induced for reason, not pertaining to the health of their child."


She said wanting/agreeing, so i took it as all inductions.

I had an elective induction. I would never do it again. I was naive.

Same here, she didn't clearly specify, I took it as all inductions as well. It wasn't that obvious to me. "Shrugs"

Quoting Jas ♥:" Okay and you know there are situations where a doctor will bring up induction for no medical reason, right? Thus comes "before agreeing"."


That's what happened to me. They said I could be induced at 39 weeks if I wanted and I agreed. I had no idea what I was doing.

I said agreeing not even thinking about emergencies. I was just thinking of my doctor who kept trying & trying to convince me to schedule an induction when I hit 41 weeks even "to be safe". The b***h (excuse my language, but she was!) also told me delivering without an epidural didnt make me a "hero". I had a completely normal, healthy pregnancy so I refused and i went into labor on my own completely naturally at 41w4d and had no complications during delivery.



Sorry for the misunderstanding. It was meant for situations like mine and the drama queens who are just "tired" of being pregnant and "cant take it any longer"

Yuck! Can't believe your doc tried to force one on you.

I completely understand situations like yours, where the doctor tries to push one on you, i guess i just took this as one of the anti induction, scare tactic posts. My bad.
I refuse to have an induction(unless medically needed of course), mostly because i want to avoid a c section at all costs. But around here, they wont let you go past 42 weeks, because then it becomes a risk to the baby or something like that.

Same here to the first part.



I had to have an emergency csection with my son, this one was planned! Boo:( for not being able to have a natural birth!
