If you are considering buying this book, you probably want to know more before you make a decision about whether to have your labour induced, or else you have decided on induction and want to know how to prepare for it.

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.

The AIMS Guide to Induction of Labour is also a handbook for those working in any part of our maternity services, for birth workers and anyone else supporting parents through pregnancy, birth and beyond.
