I completely understand all of your frustrations. I am not planning a NCB, per se, but I certainly plan to go without medical intervention as long as my body can handle and if that is the whole labor, then so be it. Anyways, I, too, see so many women talking of induction before they are even due. It is so frustrating to me because there are so many risks involved and I think it is irresponsible of any mother to willingly put their children at risk for their own selfish reasons. I understand wanting the pregnancy to be over, I understand being uncomfortable as I am there, but I would NEVER allow my doctor to induce me prior to 41 weeks of pregnancy unless there was a pressing medical issue.

ETA: Even at 41 weeks, there would have to be a medical reason for an induction for me to consider it.
