"Men are what their mothers made them" --Ralph Waldo Emerson
All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.
Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own.
The loveliest materpiece of the heart of God is the love of a Mother.

There are only three reasons why you ended up in this page, either you're overdue and worry the baby will be too big to carry out, or you just can't stand any much longer labour pain, or you just too desperate to meet your baby for the first time. Whichever it is, you can find some induction method in this page. Some may applied to you well, some may not. Read through and decide which one is more suitable for your own case. You might want to consult with your own doctor too. Because each pregnancy in each women for each babies are unique.

For those whose ended up in this page with no reasons as I mentioned earlier, you may read this too.


What is induced labour?

Labour naturally will start by its own as the result of the baby's getting ready to be delivered by the time he/she is ready (fully-term). But there are some cases when we need to get the baby to be delivered sooner even before the labour was started, therefore we need to trigger the labour to happen by inducing the labour. 

Induced labour may due to:

1. Overdue Carrying. Usually doctor will only reccomend you to wait no longer that 2 weeks over the estimated due date. This is to avoid a bad womb environtment, as the placenta may not be a good nutrients source for your baby anymore. It will be dangerous for the baby's health.

2. Your Placenta doesn't work properly. Even if you're not over due, your placenta might have some problem. You'll get your placenta to be tested somewhere around 32-34 weeks of your pregnancy. If the test showing that you have too little amount of amniotic fluid, then it's best for your baby to be delivered sooner.

3. Your water breaks early without any labour started. When your water breaks, the womb become more exposed to outside world, giving higher chances of infection. And the placenta is having the fluid lesser and lesser. All this may endangered the baby's health.

4. You or your baby has a serious illnes/health condition, such as preeclampsia, high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease, etc.


Labour can be induced in a natural ways (no medical practitioner needed) or medical ways (medical practitioner needed).
