What I said…

Yeah, so here’s a very recent article showing twice the risk for cesarean when first-time moms undergo labor induction. So please, if you know a woman thinking about having an induction have them re-think the whole thing. (And it’s my position that any induction carries some risk of “failure” though this study cites medical inductions only).

And if they ask you, “What’s so wrong with a cesarean?” You can send them here:

  2. It is so important to do our part to stem the tide of unnecessary hospital births with interventions. I definitely engage new mothers in conversation about their births and share my stories as well. Thanks for the reinforcement and validation.
