Inductions seem to be coming into style. across Canada, about 20% of pregnancies end with an induction rather than a natural labour. that’s about 1 in 5. it varies from province to province – in Nunavut, for example, its just 3%. (That’s more like it.)
An induction is a tool that can be used properly or used at an inappropriate time. it is up to each family to speak with their doctor/midwife and figure out what is best for them. there are many reasons that a pregnancy may need to be induced, but there are also some risks attached to induction. its your job to figure out when the risks of keeping the baby inside outweigh the risks of an induction.
