Yesterday’s San Francisco Chronicle ran a rather bizarre article on a new study on inductions.

Best I can tell, the conclusion they’re trying to make is that inductions wouldn’t lead to more sections if the induction process were allowed to work as long as it needs to.

Kind of along the same lines, this video comparing two section births (for failure to progress) to a home VBAC has been getting a lot of attention.

    Hysterical. So, setting aside the problem of talking about women who “choose” to induce (doctors pressure much? nah), there’s this fabulous quote: “‘it’s not the induction itself, it’s how it’s managed. . . . Patience is really a virtue in this setting.'” Imagine if doctors could take that same patience and apply it to a woman’s _natural_ labor!

      I had the SAME reaction to that ‘patience is a virtue’ quote and had to seriously fight the urge to write something very snarky in my post. Ugh – that study is weak and the Globe picked it up and ran it into today’s paper..

    Your title is very subversive and clever. 🙂
