Education is key to avoiding increasingly common practices that are unnecessary or sometimes harmful; Women share birth experiences in their own voices WASHINGTON, May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Every pregnant woman hopes for the same thing - a safe and healthy birth for her baby.

But increases admissions to special care baby units Research: Outcomes of elective induction of labor compared with expectant management: population based study Induction of labor beyond 37 weeks of pregnancy can reduce perinatal mortality (death before, during or shortly after birth) without increasing caesarean section rates, finds a study published on bmj.com today. However, induction is associated with a greater risk of admission to a special care baby unit. Induction of labor...

Pregnant women whose waters break late in preterm pregnancy but before they are in labor–the medical term for this situation is preterm prelabor rupture of the membranes–are best managed by monitoring and waiting until they deliver spontaneously rather than by inducing labor according to a study by Dutch researchers published in this week's PLoS Medicine. In their study, David van der Ham, from the Maastricht University Medical Center, Netherlands, and colleagues randomized...

Wait for natural labor, researchers say A University of Adelaide study has revealed that inducing labor in pregnant women when it's not medically necessary is more likely to result in complications at birth. Elective induction is becoming more common around the world, with many women being induced for social and other non-medical reasons. Dr Rosalie Grivell from the University of Adelaide's Robinson Institute has studied the data of more than 28,000 births from across South...

An analysis of the UK Obstetric Surveillance System published in this week's PLoS Medicine shows that uterine rupture–a serious complication of pregnancy in which the wall of the uterus (womb) tears during pregnancy or early labour–is rare but for women who have previously had a caesarean section, the risk of rupture increases with the number of previous caesarean deliveries, a short interval since the last caesarean section, and with induced labour. Kathryn Fitzpatrick and...

A new study published in the journal Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica reveals that induction of labor at term in the absence of maternal or fetal indications increases the risk of cesarean section and other postpartum complications for the woman, as well as neonatal complications. Induction of labor is common and increasing over time in many countries. A large proportion of women are induced for "social" and other "non-recognized" reasons. Led by Rosalie Grivell, BSc, BMBS,...

In a study to be presented today at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine's annual meeting, The Pregnancy Meeting , in Dallas, Texas, researchers will report findings that suggest that induction of labor in patients who suffer a rupture of membranes between the 34th and 37th week of gestation (before the onset of labor) does not reduce the risk of infection or respiratory problems in the newborn. "Our research indicates that in patients who underwent close monitoring, known as expectant...

A new study published in the international Nordic journal Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica (AOGS) reveals that inducing labor in the weeks around term, or from week 39 to week 41, is not connected with higher rates of cesarean section compared with waiting for a later spontaneous or induced labor. There has been much debate about this in recent years with a concern that induction as opposed to expectant management might lead to a higher risk for the woman to end up with emergency...

Labor Induction is a process of giving an artificial start to birth with medical intervention or other methods. When an induction is not performed for emergency or other medical reasons, the method is considered an elective process. The decision to induce labor has increased in recent years due to its convenience or because it easily accommodates busy schedules. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, however, say that labor should only be induced when it is more risky...
