ACOG Issues Revision Of Labor Induction Guidelines

So I read this article and the last paragraph says;
Quote:
"A physician capable of performing a cesarean should be readily available any time induction is used in the event that the induction isn't successful in producing a vaginal delivery," notes Dr. Ramin. Although rare, there are potential complications with some methods of labor induction. "These guidelines will help physicians utilize the most appropriate method depending on the unique characteristics of the pregnant woman and her fetus."
My mind also inserts anesthesiologist next to "physician capable of performing a cesarean" since they can't do surgery without one. Which then puts labor induction into the same category as VBAC, where there needs to be 24 hour anesthesiology and an OB at all times for TOL. So any hospital that bans VBAC should also not be performing an induction of labor since it has the same guidelines. Well, in my way of thinking anyway...lol.

I read the new ACOG guideline too. It clearly sates that 'post dates" is AFTER 42 weeks gestation. So much for OBs claiming you are 'overdue' at 40 weeks 1 day.

That's a great point! I think I'm going to have to sneak this off to the debates...

Very insightful thinking there!

Someone on the VBAC board pointed out that indcutions are scheduled. Which is true, so most are done during the day, but on the other hand the same criteria should be in place for augmentation of labor, which happens at any time of the day/night. So if you take it to debates and someone brings up the point there is a counter point to it

That's what I was thinking as well - it's not just about induction because even if the methods aren't used to start labor, they're nearly always used to move it along.

I was thinking the same thing as I was reading that paragraph. And I agree that if that's the standard for induction, it should be for augmentation, too.
