How far will your midwife let you go "over" before they want to induce?

She knows my history of 42+ weekers so I don't think either of us will get concerned until 43 weeks. My last midwife had a 44 week cut off, at that point she either broke your water at the center hoping to start labor or you could opt to go to the hospital for an induction.

Typically 42 weeks. My last was born at 42 weeks 1 day though.

42 weeks. If it's looking like you're going to go much past that she will try some natural induction methods.

The first home birth midwife said she had no limit, the 2nd (that I'll be using in TN) said that if there are no signs close to 42 weeks she will suggest natural induction techniques.

Forty-two before she really started pushing for the induction. Next baby, I will likely be with her again and I don't know that I'll accept induction talk until forty-four weeks (Orion went forty-three weeks plus three.).

My midwives have no cut off unless baby is not doing good or placenta starts having problems.

I think she said she'll let me push over 42 weeks, but I'll try as many natural induction techniques as I need to if we get to the point of a medical induction. I was hoping not to worry about it this time, but it looks like we'll have to talk about it in a few days when I see her again

42 weeks. But if things are happening, just not in full blown labor, she wont do anything.
