    Default *spin off* when were you induced and did you need intervention

    Its my opinion that if your induced BEFORE 40 weeks there is more chance of needed emergency c-section, forceps etc.

    So my question is, at how many weeks were you induced and did you need intervention of any kind (emergency c-section, forceps, vaccuum etc)??

    I was induced at 40+6 and needed NOTHING!! Natural (well as much as a induced birth can be), normal delivery.

    Induced at 40+6 also.
    C-section at 41+1, failure to progress.
    Needed forceps also because his head was literally wedged in my pelvis.

    I was induced at 42+2

    2 doses of gel and at least 1 S&S

    Syntocin

    ARM

    Epidural as the contractions went from nothing to riduculous in an instant

    DS had pooed before birth (can be a sign of stress)

    > < This close to needing a c-section (I heard one of the OBs say if the baby isn't out in 5 minutes we need to do a cs)

    Ventouse delivery

    Managed third stage

    Third degree tear

    He just wastn't ready to come out

    All in all is was a pretty awful experience and left me feeling inadequate. I had a fantastic birth with DD though, active labour, intervention free and only gas during transition

    I was induced at 38 weeks due to Pre eclampsia. I had a very long labour which ended in an emergency c section
    I hated every minute of the c section and will do everything in my power to avoid it again when I have another bubba.

    I was induced at 39+6 after my waters broke at 39+4 with no progression of labour.

    Apart from fetal heart monitoring I had no other interventions

    38w2d due to toxemia. His waters were broken as he was crowning as we were both heading into distress.
    Under 4 hour labour and 10 odd mins of pushing.

    ETA - I had one dose of the gel
