    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    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.
