Sometimes induction of labour will be beneficial, but it also has risks. It is up to you to decide whether induction is right for you and your baby. This book guides you through your rights and provides essential, evidence-based information about the benefits and risks of induction in different situations, giving easy to read key evidence points. It also makes clear when there is a lack of good evidence. It give suggestions of things to consider and questions you may want to ask your midwife or doctor. There are explanations of methods used to induce labour, what to expect, the options you may have during the process, and ideas on how to prepare and encourage an induction to work.
