    I was induced at 36 weeks due to PE and the development of HELLP. I had ARM and syntocinin. After 6 hrs at 4cm I asked for an epidural. As soon as that took effect I was 10cm in 30 minutes. No other intervention necessary.

    It's amazing how an epidural can speed things along like that. I went five hours just sitting at 2cm. Thought to myself "Nothing's happening but the pain keeps getting worse, bugger this, gimme drugs" Five hours later I'm pushing a baby out.

    I love epidurals... Having one was probably the most possitive part of the whole labour

    I posted a study on my fb page recently about how 1/3 of inductions in Australia end up in c-section.

    http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/1...339.x/abstract

    Not what they tell you is it!

    I've had 2 inductions - for the second one i had an epidural from the start - I learnt my lesson the first time.

    Induced at 39+3 due to unstable sugar levels due to GD
    2 lots of gel
    ARM
    Syntocin

    Tried the gas (useless), had an epi, went to sleep. Woke up, pushed and DD was born.

    No interventions, 2nd degree tear

    With DS I was induced at 38+3 due to PE. Awesome 3 hr labour and easy, normal v/b. Much better than my spontaneous labour with DD which was 11 hrs and ventouse delivery.

    38 + 2, posterior facing baby, needed vacuum to help him out. Think I was about 5cm around 6pm and if I didn't dilate by 9 they were talking c-sect. Fortunately I was 10cm @ 9pm - started pushing & DS was born 10:50pm.

    Meanwhile gas did nothing but make me talk all speddy, and epi barely worked either :-S

    Ps. Induced due high BP & protein in urine.

    Is that the same study that showed that approx 1/3 of inductions end in c-sect, 1/3 have assisted delivery (ventouse or forceps) and only 1/3 end in a 'natual'(?) vaginal birth?
