INDUCED LABORS CAN DOUBLE OR EVEN TRIPLE YOUR RISK OF A HAVING A CESAREAN



"A new study involving nearly 8,000 first time mothers suggests a strong link between inductions and c-sections. Researchers found that women who had their labors induced were twice as likely to have a c-section."

Induced labors twice as likely to end in C-section

And from another post:
"In the Thorsell 2011 study (abstract below), first-time mothers with an unripe cervix who were induced had a 42% c-section rate in labor. Yes, you read that correctly; nearly half ended up with a cesarean. After controlling for other factors, inducing labor in a first-time mother with an unripe cervix tripled her risk for a cesarean."
