I have a friend in the L&D medical field and she has told me all of these things as well. Unless there is a medical reason for either mom or baby, she does not recommend induction at all b/c of the risks associated with it (c-section, body hemmoraging due to longer labor, etc).

My due date is 09/02/2011. I would like her ,to be born early, at least before Sep, 1, so she will not miss a school cut off.Where I live the dead line for school is August 31. I asked my doctor of techniques ( i did not mean induction) but she told me if there aren't any risks with me or baby during pregnancy then they will not induce me until 42 weeks.
