    Not many women should HAVE to be induced that is the thing... understanding induction and knowing when it is really necessary is important. Grab a copy of The Thinking Womans Guide to a Better Birth... great reading for every pregnant woman.

    I had to be induced for my first pregnancy and if you can avoid it then definately try to!!
    My waters broke and thats about all that happened, no contractions nothing so 3 days later at 7am i was induced, and i had no opportunity to get used to the contractions so it was extremely painful, i ended up having an epidural and falling asleep lol and at 10.21pm Rylan Max finally arrived.
    That was my experience i hope it didnt sound too scary!!
    If it has to be done then it must be the best thing for you and your baby so good luck either way.

    DD came on her own at 41+4, but i was booked for induction at 42wks. I stated that unless my labour failed to progress at all for 24 hours or more i refused pitocin and my Ob had a feel of my cervix (which was open to 2cm for the last 3 weeks of pregnancy) and said he'd just rupture my membrane and see how i went.

    My labour began with my waters going so i reckon that'd have been enough to bring her out :-)
