Risk For the Pregnant Woman and Her Child Might Increase Due To Induced Labor

A new study has recently revealed the fact that when the labor is induced to start early in pregnant women, this might tend to increase the risk of complications for both the mother and the child. This has been revealed according to a research done in Australia, which is of the view that jumpstarting labor might actually prove to be harmful for the two.

They are of the view that in as many as 28000 cases studied in this regard, it was found that about included labor tended to increase the risk of a caesarean, which in turn increases the risk of complications for the mother and the child. The team suggests that the risk of caesareans in such cases is increased by up to 70%, which is an alarming rate.

“The main concern we would have is exposing women to an increased risk of a caesarean section. That has implications for their health and the health of future babies. About 50 per cent of the inductions are for reasons that are not medically accepted induction”, said senior lecturer from the university's Robinson Institute, Dr. Rosalie Grivell.

There are cases in which it is essential to induce labor early. This might be due to conditions that are already risking the health and safety of the mother and the child. It might be due to reasons such as fetal distress, infection, early rupture of the membrane and so on.

There is need for carefully monitoring these changes and making sure that the best possible decision is being taken for each mother and her child. There is need to take careful steps avoiding any sort of risks for them.
