"Rates of labor induction are on the rise in the United States. This trend is fueled by increases in the number of women having high-risk pregnancies and more frequent use of labor induction for non-medical or social reasons (sometimes referred to as elective induction). There is confusion and disagreement about the safety and appropriate use of labor induction. As a result, use of induction varies widely from one caregiver or hospital to the next. Even the results of research studies on labor induction provide conflicting answers. It can be difficult to make informed choices about induction of labor in the midst of these uncertainties." - Childbirth Connection
