Your doctor could have provided this option due to literature stating that there is an increase in death after 41 weeks. Placental insufficiency, meconium aspiration, etc. I am all into natural. I would have a good conversation though about the actual risks associated with overdue. I am discussing the same with my doc today (actually at 39 weeks) due to age risks. I want as natural as possible (with an epi) but I want what is healthiest for her. That could be induction.
