I was induced at 36 weeks due to PE and the development of HELLP. I had ARM and syntocinin. After 6 hrs at 4cm I asked for an epidural. As soon as that took effect I was 10cm in 30 minutes. No other intervention necessary.

I love epidurals... Having one was probably the most possitive part of the whole labour

I posted a study on my fb page recently about how 1/3 of inductions in Australia end up in c-section.
Not what they tell you is it!
I've had 2 inductions - for the second one i had an epidural from the start - I learnt my lesson the first time.

Induced at 39+3 due to unstable sugar levels due to GD
2 lots of gel
Tried the gas (useless), had an epi, went to sleep. Woke up, pushed and DD was born.
No interventions, 2nd degree tear

With DS I was induced at 38+3 due to PE. Awesome 3 hr labour and easy, normal v/b. Much better than my spontaneous labour with DD which was 11 hrs and ventouse delivery.

38 + 2, posterior facing baby, needed vacuum to help him out. Think I was about 5cm around 6pm and if I didn't dilate by 9 they were talking c-sect. Fortunately I was 10cm @ 9pm - started pushing & DS was born 10:50pm.
Meanwhile gas did nothing but make me talk all speddy, and epi barely worked either :-S
Ps. Induced due high BP & protein in urine.
