Induction

Induction of labour is a common procedure used to start the process of labour and childbirth. You may have heard it referred to simply as induction or getting induced. It is a way of artificially starting the process of childbirth, for babies who are physically ready to enter the world, but aren’t interested in leaving the cosy cocoon of mum’s womb.

If your doctor or midwife has concerns about your health or yourbaby’s health toward the end of your pregnancy, he or she might suggest speeding up the process. This is called inducing labor, or induction. Instead of waiting for labor to start naturally, your doctor or midwife will use drugs or a procedure to start it sooner.

Induction can be the right choice for some women, but it has risks. Most experts say it’s best to let labor begin on its own and progress naturally unless there’s a clear medical reason.
