Induction rates have increased dramatically. A childbirth educator wonders how she can help pregnant women say “no” to induction. This column describes the last days and weeks of pregnancy as vitally important for both the mother and her baby, insuring the baby's maturity and the mother's readiness for labor. Women are encouraged to appreciate the last days and weeks of pregnancy and to have confidence that when a woman's body and her baby are ready, labor will begin spontaneously. This information, as well as knowledge of how induction alters the process of normal labor and birth and increases the possibility of having a near-term infant, is the foundation for informed refusal.
