Elective induction of labor at 39 weeks among low-risk nulliparous women has reduced the chance of cesarean and other adverse maternal and perinatal outcomes in a randomized trial, although its clinic...
Labor is induced in 20-30% of maternities with an increasing trend of use. Labor induction with oral misoprostol is associated with reduced risk of Cesarean births and has a comparable safety and effe...
A growing body of evidence supports improved or not worsened birth outcomes with non-medically indicated induction of labor at 39 weeks compared to expectant management. This evidence includes two rec...
Since it is a frequent intervention in Obstetrics, labor induction is rarely evaluated from national population-based cohorts. The study aims to assess the frequency of different inductio...
Induction of labor is associated with increased cesarean delivery rates, particularly in women with an unfavorable cervix. Both pharmacologic and mechanical methods are utilized for cervic...

The beginning of true OBSTETRIC LABOR which is characterized by the cyclic uterine contractions of increasing frequency, duration, and strength causing CERVICAL DILATATION to begin (LABOR STAGE, FIRST ).
The repetitive uterine contraction during childbirth which is associated with the progressive dilation of the uterine cervix (CERVIX UTERI). Successful labor results in the expulsion of the FETUS and PLACENTA. Obstetric labor can be spontaneous or induced (LABOR, INDUCED).
