Helping nature: Inducing labor avoids cesarean for some moms

A doctor performs an ultrasound scan on a pregnant woman at a hospital in Chicago. According to a study released on Wednesday, first-time mothers at low risk of complications were less likely to need a cesarean delivery if labor was induced at 39 weeks instead of waiting for it to start on its own. Their babies fared better, too.

Dr. William Grobman says having an induced pregnancy doesn’t mean moms can’t have “natural childbirth” – they can forgo pain medicine or use a hospital’s homelike birthing center rather than delivering in “an operating room in a sterile suite with a big light over your head.”
