Inducing Labor Study

FROM NBC: I was surprised to hear a new study finds medically inducing a woman into labor does not increase her risk for c-section. Researchers in California looked at studies that compared women who waited for labor to start naturally, and those who were induced during late pregnancy. They found inducing labor after 41 weeks gestation lowered the risk for cesarean section by 22 percent. Experts say the longer a woman is pregnant, the less oxygen is delivered to the fetus and the fetus may show more signs of stress. Experts say whether a woman is induced or waits ... as patiently as she can... it is a decision that must be made with a doctor. Experts say it's also important doctors give time for induction to work, and not rush to a c-section.

I was surprised to read the findings. What do you think?
