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 40 weeks both times and did not require intervention either time.

I was induced at 42+2
2 doses of gel and at least 1 S&S
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)
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.

No intervention, no drugs, no cfm, apart from synto I had nothing else.

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
