Childbirth Induction Essential Info

ANSWER: Medically, often times an induction is recommended when the mom will go over her due date, which as a reminder is an estimation of when the baby should arrive or when the mom should go into labor. But typically when moms go with the due date, there is a strong consideration for induction after say 40 to 41 weeks. Also, there can be medical reasons such as hypertensive disease where there’s maybe poor blood pressure control or moms who may have diabetes and, and if that is poorly controlled than as a consideration for induction or rare occasions, babies may be growing too small. So the environment inside the womb may not be supportive of the baby’s growth, and you can see that for another reason. Reason for induction, commonly called intrauterine growth restriction or IAGR.”
