    I've been following your thread, and am really happy that you're getting more support from your care providers. I hope you don't have to wait too much longer to be holding your wee one in your arms

    Research shows that babies born after 42 weeks of pregnancy are at increased risk of dying before labour or during (to 1 in 10 rather than 1 in 100).
    The placenta has a limited life span and more likely to reduce its life span at this time.
    About 500 inductions are done to prevent one baby from dying. Babies born after this time are at increased risk of becoming distressed during labour, increasing the woman's chance of needing an emergency cs.

    So considering the op isn't too far off the 42 week mark I personally think the dr is being sensible in suggesting an induction and it shouldn't be disputed. I bet if something terrible did happen considering the op decided against drs advice she would be the first to put the blame on someone else... as often is the case unfortunately... Working in risk management I see it all the time
    So how does this comment from the OP get taken into account when you are making these statements?

    "It was agreed that if i was induced today it probably would not have went well since the head is not low enough and im not open at all. I could feel a cascade of intervention being needed!"

    Just because she is at or near her due date certainly does not mean that baby is ready to be born. As clearly shown

    So glad you and bub are doing well OP and fingers crossed he/she decides to make an entrance soon. It really makes a difference when you have care providers that make you feel normal and cared for and supported. I love, love, love my midwife and was devastated and really upset when she was off and I seen another one who made me feel confused and bullied into a decision I didn't want to make. Thankfully my middy came back and all was sorted. Keep updating!

    I am watching this thread carefully. I am very worried about the outcome. I pray you and your baby will have a positive outcome. I tend to err on the side of caution and do trust doctors and their professional opinion.

    I don't have any advice but I was born 11 days late and my mum refused to be induced and no complications with her labour or me!

    i trust health care providers more when they demonstrate evidenced based medicine, communicate with their patients and discuss the benefits and risks of actions rather than resorting to scare tactics.

    Good on you OP for returning to the hospital, talking up about your concerns and making yourself heard.

    Will be thinking of you as you prepare to birth your baby.

    Why are people trying to freak the OP out with misinformed stats regarding stillbirth? She's only just a week over her EDD!

    The reg has said the fluid levels and baby's size are good. This indicates good placental function. Increasing rates of stillbirth above 39 weeks are related to decreased placental function.

    Give the woman a break. She's done the right thing by her and her baby by seeking a 2nd opinion and avoiding unnecessary intervention.
