    Default Getting a Induction before or on your due date in the public system

    If you have had a induction in the public system on or before your due date, What was your reason?


    I know and fully understand about that increases in my risk of other intervention etc....

    I know my body can do it without further invention.....

    I was induced on my due date with dd1 but that was private and was due to extreme swelling during a heatwave.....

    I have been offered a c/section at 38 weeks but I turned that down.

    I need it for my own peace of mind. I need test done that can't be done until bub is born. I need to know where I stand, this not knowing is stressing to the max.

    I had an induction in the public system but I was overdue.

    I would try with the true reason you have mentioned.

    Good luck.

    I would think that with your history and current need for tests etc... you would have an extremely high chance of getting an induction.
    Best of luck

    I have been seeing 2 different OB registrar's. One is really good, she the one that offered the c/section and the other one well just dismisses me. I tried to explain to the one who dismisses me, what the endocrinologist said but she just wouldn't listen. She seems to think that it is just swollen and will go down after the birth therefore it is no big deal. When it really is that I have nodules are really big.
    The thing is she is a ob, the endocrinologist who said I need the test are the specialist for it. So surely they know more about it and the fact they have already done some tests must mean something.

    I get to see both the ob and endo in 2 weeks i hoping I get to see endo first but I think it maybe the other way round. It actually going to be a big morning as I have scan before all that too. Anyhow I will talk to them about a induction at that appointment.

    Sorry for the ramble......

    would seeing the psych at the hospital help? explaining your personal and medical situation. the may be able to help sway the odds as it is a rather big burden to be shouldering

    Not rambley at all. Can you get the endo to write a letter for you? Or would she be willing to contact the obs?

    Public can be hard in this way....hey what about making an appt with the social workers? Or Psych? I know when I went public with bub, the social workers were on hand a lot.

    ETA Too slow! What they ^^^ said.

    I will try that if I don't get anywhere at the next appointment.

    I see both at the high risk clinic on the same day next time as well as having a scan. What a morning that will be. You would think that they talk to each other but than again it is the public system. Even if i see the ob first I will still ask the endo guys to recommend it and ask them to chat to the ob's.

    I need time to make plans if i do need the rai. I need to find somewhere to live for a few weeks and i need to find someone to be a full-time carer for bub as I won't even be allowed to be in the sane room as him. Well not here at home anyhow. I need these test done... I need to know one way or the other.

    The endo didn't write in my copy of pg records but they did write in my main file.
