I'm meeting the consultant next week to discuss being induced. I'm currently 36 + 4 and at 41 years old I'm worried about the increased risk of still birth after 39 weeks for older women. After years of trying to conceive, fertility treatment and miscarriage I feel this is my one chance of becoming a Mum. I am aware that being induced brings its own risk and I will listen to the pros and cons when discussing with the consultant before making a final decision. My ideal birth would be one with as little intervention as possible and I am keen to remain active and if possible avoid an epidural.
So I'm interested in your experiences of being induced and in particular any tips you may have for making it as positive as possible.
