This will be short and sweet, since I feel like too much on the topic is really unnecessary.
I really, really, really wish that OB's would tell their first time moms the risks of induction. I realize that its more convenient for the patient, and more convenient for the dr.'s to just schedule inductions these days, but you never really hear the statistics of those inductions that end up in c-sections.
I was a "great" candidate for an induction. I was 5cm dilated, and already contracting. They broke my water and started pitocin. I never dilated past 7cm. Even though hind sight is always 20/20, I think that had I waited until my body did its own thing, miss O's birth would've been vaginal and a lot less traumatic.
But, no one told me that an induction has higher possibilities of ending in a c-section.
So, that's all I want. Just for women to KNOW this fact before they sign up for that time slot.
