March 22, 2013 at 3:28 PM

Everyone I know who has been induced all ended up having emergency c -sections, I was wondering what is more common.  

EDIT  I guess I should have been more specific, I was talking about induction with a pitocin drip. 

I was induced, it ended with

    I was "induced" with my 2nd I use the quotes bc I was in labor and they just wanted to control things. They never took me off the lowest dose bc my water broke before they could. I hbirth animal birth. My first was also vaginal without induction and th 3rd was at home.

     I do know several woman induced that had c sections. Most were first time moms which ups your risk by 50%. It's also more risky to be induced without any signs of labor vs "stalling" or coming in a 4 and using pit. There are a lot of factors but over all pit makes labor harder on mom and  baby which leads to the causes for c section.

    I was induced and had an emergency c-section... mine was not a typical reason though. Our dd Kahlan stopped moving, so when I got to L&D when my OB sent me, they hooked me up and she was already gone. They induced me and after 3 days of no progression and my body shutting down, I had an emergency c-section. I was 36 weeks.
