Thank you for your balance opinion! I agree - pure education about the risks of induction would be so helpful to bring down those harmful numbers (not to mention traumatic birth experiences for moms AND babies!)
I haven't yet heard of ANY occurrence where a mother was in the hospital, in labor, and ANY risk was even mentioned at all when the induction routine began. No one suggests that starting a pitocin drip or whatever is at all risky. It's just the automatic route.
Hopefully sites and discussions like this will spread the truth about labor! :)
