I dont think that an induction should be done unless the placenta is not functioning any longer. If going any further TRUELY threatens the mother or the baby, then perhaps labor should be induced. My MW doesn't do an induction until a simple stress test starts to show that your placenta is not functioning, which she says has a tendency to happen at around 43 weeks, IF they were right about your due date. She would also do an induction if the health of the baby or mother started to decline and giving birth was the only way to help it.
