    Are the 4680 women over 40 wks in the Caossolo study women who are 40wks to 40 wks 7 days, or is everyone over 40 wks and then broken down further with the figures for women over 41 wks? And same question question for the 41 wks + group… did they have any women 42 wks or more? Thanks!

      Beth,

      If I’m interpreting the charts correctly, the 4,680 women are all over 40 weeks.

      The 41+ week group includes all women over 41 weeks.

      They did not break out the data for women over 42 weeks.

      I hope this helps!

      Jen

    Hello! Thanks for the info. I wonder however if there are studies that compare the method of induction. My Doula said that the increase rates of uterine/ scar rupture was due to using high dosages of pitosin, but now the induction uses lower dosages and administered at longer intervals. Do you know something about this?
    Thank you
