Also you say elective c-section could make up part of the stats but I can assure you, ALOT of women elect to be induced (probably more then those who choose an elective c-section) for various reasons. It's a lot less full on then a c-section and it offers a lot of fifo parents the opportunity to be there (for one reason) of course there are greater risks of complications which I am guessing would make up for the rest of the high stats like instrument intervention etc. however the initial inducement was wanted (maybe not warranted) by the patient.
I was one of these patients twice. While I was induced I had no intervention by the use of instruments or drugs. But I wouldn't change my choice in opting to be induced. I was also low risk.
Many mums in private care CHOOSE these options because they DON'T get that choice in public. THAT is why the stats are much higher.
