ETA by induction I mean the gel, pitocin etc like pp says they would prob give you a stretch and sweep but thats not really induction.
Just saw your post... Thanks for the info smile
Successful VBAC participant here and planning on another VBAC to deliver my bub in September. First and foremost make sure you OB allows you to go the 10-14 days past due date and doesn't give you until your due date. You will have a higher success rate of a vaginal birth going into labour spontaneously. I was 6 days over my daughter and had a 7 hour labour.
You can be induced but not with drugs. I suppose it would depend on the hospital and what techniques they use but I was told if I didnt go into labour with my daughter they would insert a balloon against your cervix..Google it I cant remember the exact method. The balloon puts pressure against your cervix encouraging it to dilate. Fingers crossed you go into labour...Hope you get your natural labour smile
Thanks all and Clarel. My case is high risk as I am sensitized with antibodies with a- blood type as well. So I dont really want baby to stay in there longer then it should be I case of risk of anemia. So I guess that is why he also said csection as well. I hope she comes early all by herself and is strong and well.
Good luck! I see you're in ACT too, if you don't mind me asking what hospital are you going to?
stretch and sweep IS a version of induction, but its not the same as being induced using drugs. The drugs give you very intense constant contractions, whereas a stretch and sweep is more just to get it going.
Hey nail&beau, I'm booking into Bruce private calvery.
Ah OK. I think whether they will induce you or not differs between the private and public system and on a case by case basis. Good luck with the birth smile
