Pregnancy Bliss | Reproductive Health Answers
Reviewing Pregnancy-Bliss site statistics, I have always been struck by the fact
that the so-called ‘DIY’ Induction of Labour is always up there in the top 5 most
searched terms on this Pregnancy and Childbirth information site..
As a practising obstetrician, however, I am never surprised by this. In my day to day work I am all the time encountering women at term who are otherwise well but who, after 40 odd weeks of pregnancy, just cannot wait for it to be over and done with. They are physically and emotionally drained and would happily swap that stress with the stress of looking after a fragile newborn.
