Background: my due date for this baby is the 20th (tomorrow) and I'm going with the midwife group practice which is low intervention. My pregnancy is low risk and I'm hoping for a water birth. This is my second baby. My first was 7 days overdue.
My partner is leaving the country for 5 days on the 29th. My midwife is calling me tomorrow to discuss my options as I'd definitely prefer him to be there for the birth. Hoping a stretch and sweep will work.
Anyway, what would you do? Opt for a medical induction before the 29th? If so, when? Partner would prefer me to get induced but has said its obviously my choice. He has also said he can cancel the trip which I would prefer him not do as its an excellent opportunity for him.
