I had a doctors appointment today and while getting my blood pressure done,I noticed a sign up on the wall directed towards pregnant women. It said "Now in effect: If you are a first time mother, please be aware that we will no longer allow elective inductions under 41 weeks. If you had a previous child, there will be no elective inductions under 39 weeks. We cannot make exceptions unless medically necessary."

I thought that was a good step in the right direction. :) It's a good hospital anyway. They have a low c sec rate, but with my oldest were VERY pushy with the drugs.

    It's a good step in the right direction but that doesn't mean that they won't still push it and say ok let's set it up for when she is 39 weeks.
