    Heya Taiyed

    I don't have time right now to read through the whole thread but I just wanted to tell you that I was induced on both my babies,
    I don't know labour any other way.
    I was hoping not to be on my last baby (12 weeks ago)
    But he wouldn't come on time and as I had GD,they wouldn't even let me go past my due date.
    However.... I want you to know that it is possible to be induced and not have any other intervention.
    I only had the cervidil both times,
    (even though the obstetrician tried his best to get me hooked up to a drip this time) I knew my body and I told him as much.
    I managed to have both babies as close to natural as I possible could, in spite of being induced.
    No intervention and no pain relief .
    So I just wanted to tell you a positive story.
    Being induced doesn't have to mean a traumatic experience for you and baby.

    You have every right to say no to an induction. If you want to wait longer to birth without induction, but want monitoring to reassure yourself, the hospital has no cause to say no to this. If they still refuse to offer you appropriate monitoring, you can go to any tertiary hospital and ask for it.

    At this stage DP and i have decided that as far as we are concerned we arent booked in for anything as we havent agreed to any intervention. Hospital booking or not. Going to take it from there and do lots of reading and i will go into any of our maternity hospitals for monitoring if we feel the need.

    GP is going to check me over on monday just to see how things are going and if they are going better then we will reasses.

    Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to reply to me. It has been very much appreciated.

    I have to agree with hopefully2. Delivery doesn't define the mother. I can understand the hurt of not getting the delivery you planned and hope for. I found out at 37 weeks with my first that she was in a breech position. The hospital booked my csection for the following week and I was heart broken.. I had a week to accept that there was no other option. To this day (3 years later) i still wish I was able to of had a natural delivery with my daughter but at the end of the day whats most important is that I have now have a very happy, healthy and beautiful little girl that I share the most amazing bond with

    I truly hope it all works out the way you hope for and I agree you shouldn't be made to feel guilty for wanting to wait but I honestly don't think it matters how your baby gets here, as long as he/she is healthy!!!

    Not wanting to get all doom and gloomy but delivery *can* influence you as a mother. Not from a natural birth = better mother way. But trauma from birthing isn't really the best way to get started. It took many months for me to bond with my baby boy, who I'm totally grateful was born well and healthy, but a mother isn't just a vessel through which a baby is born. We are people too.

    (Though I was induced by jerks and morons so individual experiences may vary)

    Dead baby card.... it's awful.

    I smiled and nodded and said "thank you" to the ob that threw the dead baby card at me. I listened to what she had to say and politely listened to her lie to my face. I was really surprised how much I didn't care though. I kinda figured if someone is just making stuff up to gain my compliance they probably don't have a leg to stand on.

    Funny how the risk of uterine rupture for a vbac is similar to the risk of an inducement.

    tell you what, thank god i have already had 2 babies already, because if it were my first child i was having and got told what i got told, i would be a mess. she told me with the ceaserian's they can ''accidently cut into your bladder and you need a catheter for 10 days, or cut the baby's face by accident and they have a scar...''.... either that or try for a vbac and ''end up with a dead baby or a brain damaged one''...

    i hope to god she's not scheduled on when i do go into labour.

    OP - Just a word of advice, just go with what you feel is right, you know your body better than someone who hasn't even read your notes.

    The problem is induction doesn't guarantee a healthy baby anyway. I was induced with my first & he went into distress multiple times before they decided on a emergency c-section 12 hours later. I was lucky my son was ok, as according to my OB this time round, on reading my notes, this could have been very different. I chose to have a c-section with my second and one reason was to avoid induction...I feel this was the right decision for me...
