    Thanks for this. I’ve been induced twice now, both for medically indicated reasons (I carried my first to 42 weeks and my second to 43, and her heart rate kept dropping during the NSTs). At 43 weeks with my second, after 30 hours of ineffective, induced labor and a continued troubling heart rate, we agreed with my Dr that a C-section was the best route. When I get pregnant again, I’ll be faced with scheduling a 2nd cesarean or trying for a VBAC. With my track record, I simply can’t expect to go into labor spontaneously. If I choose a VBAC, which I hope to unless there is a good medical reason not to, it will most likely have to be aided by medically indicated induction.
