Labor induction actually decreases risk of c-section
Labor induction actually decreases risk of c-section (April 29, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From London - A new report published in CMAJ finds that risk of cesarean section actually decreases with labor induction. Researchers conducted a meta-analysis of over 150 trials comprised of over 31,000 deliveries. Results showed that risk of cesarean section decreased by 12% when post-term pregnancies were induced. Risk was lower in both high and low risk pregnancies, and risk of complications or fetal death was also lower among women who were induced.
