Reasons for Labor Induction, California, 2016
Date Created: September 2018
More than one-third of women who had labor induced (labor started by a provider using a drug and/or other methods before it started on its own) said the reason was that their baby was full term, which is not an evidence-based indication for labor induction. One-quarter said they had labor induced due to a health problem. At least 37% of women with attempted induced labor solely cited non-evidence-based reasons for having their labors induced, a procedure that can add medical risks.
