That's just it. Being induced to scheduling a section, even at 37 weeks is risky. There have been 3 babies born in our ddc already, all but one have come early on their own, but not one of them is not in the NICU. WHY would anyone take such a risk?? Praise God that babies born early have a very high survival rate, and that the NICU is a miraculous place, but why ASK for it???
