on the importance of waiting to the 39/40 week mark to be induced.. A friend of mine is starting to talk about getting induced if she doesn't have her baby by oct 27 (her edd is nov 7) because her grandma is going on vacation or something like that. i had a great article i've seen on one of these boards but can't find it now. This is a friend who's "hoping" for NCB and wants to breastfeed but is stocking up on formula at her mom's recommendation for just in case her milk doesn't come in fast enough.. and yeah.. I mentioned that i wouldn't wish an induction on anyone (i've had one). She asked why so I said that it hurts like hell (much more than NCB) and that it leads to a much greater chance of c/s.. she seemed surprised by this and was "open" to more info but i dont know that she'll read or listen to it so I just want to send it in case.
We live in a state with a 35% rate for c/s.
