Inducing Labour

When it comes to inducing labour there are two different approaches - medical or natural. Typically, these two types of induction are used for very different reasons. When a doctor induces labour for medical reasons it is often due to a complication; however, when a mother tries to induce labour naturally it is usually because of preference. In this section we cover natural ways to encourage labour when you are approaching your due date as well as information on medically induced labours.
