This information is only directed to women who have previously had a Caesarean section or other major surgeries to the uterus.

There are different methods of inducing labour. The shorter, softer, and more dilated the cervix is the easier it is to enduce labour.

25 % of all birth are medically induced in Denmark. There are many different reasons for induction of labour. The most common reason is that the pregnancy has passed the due date by 10-12 days.
It is important to be patient when natural labour occurs as it can take time before the contractions become effective. The same applies when labour is induced. Induced labour can be ineffective, however this rarely occurs.
