Inducing labor at 39 weeks reduces likelihood of C-sections

Washington University in St. Louis

Inducing labor in healthy first-time mothers in the 39th week of pregnancy results in lower rates of cesarean sections compared with waiting for labor to begin naturally at full term, according to a multicenter study funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Additionally, infants born to women induced at 39 weeks did not experience more stillbirths, newborn deaths or other major health complications.

Choosing to induce could also reduce the risk that mothers will develop preeclampsia and that newborns will need respiratory support after delivery, according to a study publishing in the New England Journal of Medicine on August 8.
