    Default Why is induction so bad?

    I went with the flow the first time too, really regret that.

    I do believe after reading that article that the term "go with the flow" means different things to different people.

    I agree but I think it's important that the woman ensures her care provider and her have the same meaning sorted.

    Default Why is induction so bad?

    I was induced at 41wks with my first (DD) and spontaneous at 40+2 with my second (DS)

    Labour with dd was just under 3hrs from start to finish - waters broken at 4pm, born at 6.53pm. Only required gas, and she was assisted with a vacuum. No mention of/requirement to need a c/s.

    Labour with DS was again close to 3 hrs. Waters broke about 11.15pm, born at 1.53am. Again - only required gas. He was born with the cord wrapped around his neck & body. I was being prepared for a c/s as DS heart rate dropped to nearly nothing with each contraction. I didn't have time for a CS tho, he had other ideas.

    Both labours I was strapped to a monitor (dd - because I was induced, DS - waters were not clear)

    My 2 experiences just go to show that anything can happen. I was happy with my induction and was very happy to he induced a second time (except the hospital wouldn't induce me earlier than 41wks!)

    Don't let stories/stats scare you - just go in prepared for a baby. At the end of the day, the End result is the same - whether it be a smooth induction, spontaneous labour, or a rocky induction... You still get to hold your precious bundle!!
