What is induction of labor

Labor induction or inducing labor — is the procedure, when the uterine contractions are stimulated during your pregnancy before labor begins naturally to achieve a vaginal delivery of your baby.

Your clinician might recommend labor induction for different reasons, especially when there is a concern for mom's or baby's health.

Very important factor in predicting the likelihood of a successful labor induction is how soft and opened your cervix is (cervical ripening).

 
The benefits of labor induction typically outweigh the risks. If you're pregnant, understanding why and how labor induction will be done can help you to prepare.
