At an induction? This is my first hospital client/birth in a few years. I've been doing birth center & home births only. As sad as I am to say it looks like she'll be induced tomorrow, I can't complain too much. This momma has done and tried everything. And she is 42weeks tomorrow. I am thrilled the OB allowed her to go this long! The OB is aware and so far supportive of the momma's wish for a natural labor and delivery. She said she'd start with Cervidil and go from there. Yes I am very aware it is an intervention just like any other, but I'm keeping hope.
So nerves aside, when do you head to support a momma who is being induced? She is supposed to 'check-in' around 7. I know the first hour or more will be filled with all the official paper work, getting into a room, her hep lock in, etc? Any suggestions? And since I haven't been to a hospital birth in years -- any words of wisdom there :oP TIA
