    Default Natural labour after induction

    With my first baby I was induced at 41+6 weeks. I had to be induced 3 times, episiotomy, suction baby out and heaps of stitches. I'm now 37 weeks with number 2 and really would love to go into labour naturally... Just wanting to hear from those who had to be induced ( overdue ) with number 1 how did your second birth start ? Thanks for your feedback

    I was induced with DS and he was born about 13 days overdue. DD came naturally at 11 days past her EDD.

    Thank you... I was worried my body didn't know how to go into labour on its own... These stories are very encouraging.

    I was induced too with my first and he ended up being born 10 days 'overdue'. I ended up being prepped for a c section but they ended up doing an episiotomy and using forceps instead. I was really stressing when I was pregnant with DD but determined not to be induced again. She ended up being born naturally 10 days overdue again, no drugs, a tiny tear (no stitches) and only 5.5 hours - so, so much easier than first time around.

    I hope this is the case for you too. I know its easier said than done but try not to stress about it now. Baby still has plenty of time to come

    First was induction.
    Second was spontaneous (the night before a scheduled induction).

    DS was induced at 42+2. It was not a pleasant experience. S&S, Syntocin, ARM, continual monitoring, Epi, ventouse, 3rd degree tear and was left feeling like a failure.

    I was determined I was not going to be induced with DD and had my first contraction at 41+2 and she was born the next day. Up until about the last hour of labour the contractions were just uncomfortable but very manageable, nothing like the induction. If you don't want to be induced you have the right to say no. Ask what your options are, offer to have regular monitoring, investigate more natural methods of bring on labour like s3x and accupuncture. Best of luck.

    Sounds like if I went over with my first then chances are I will go overdue again... Is this how it's happened for most of you ?

    Second - natural labour - and let me say going into labour natuarlly is SO much EASIER then induced! I only found about 2 hours of the whole thing that unbearable pain the rest was all not too bad. Great great great experience!
    Same experience for my first 2. Really regret not doing my research and being induced at 41 weeks. She would have come in her own time.
    Second experience was surprisingly pleasant!!
