    But the point is Theo that you did get to have your baby in your arms.

    Yes I did get to hold my baby in my arms but that does not diminish the trauma I experienced because of my induction. I Would have held him in my arms without the induction and without the trauma that went with it.

    If there is nothing wrong with your bub then you will have him in your arms either way. Why go through all the trauma of an induction for no reason? I understand you are worried but for me, I'd be more worried about being induced and ending up WITHOUT a healthy baby.

    My friend was forced into an induction at 42 weeks and as a result of complications/interventions related to the induction, the baby died. He was otherwise perfectly healthy. Not trying to scare you but you need to consider all the possibilities.

    I have to agree with DarcyJ, although I had to be induced and DS was fine, my induction left me traumatized for well over a year. Because it failed and I had a csect I had so much trouble breast feeding. If I could do it all again, knowing what I know now, things would have been much different.

    Ill be honest, my rupture happened because I tried to bring on labour at 37.5 well I will be taking it very easy this time round to avoid if.

    Ultimately you just need to talk to mohr OB and be happy with their decision either way. Good luck again op.

    I really appreciate everyone's replies. It has given me a lot to think about from both sides. I am seeing my OB on Tuesday and will chat to him then, whatever he decides is best I will accept as I feel he is the one I should trust most
