Have any of you ever had medication induced cervical ripening? My midwife is recommending that I try cervidil next week, and although I said yes, I'm having second thoughts. I'm 40w, 4d today.
I am planning a natural birth at my local birth center. If I reach 42 weeks, I can't give birth there and have to go to a hospital. They also scared me a little bit about increased c-section and other complication rates after 42 weeks. So, if I try the cervidil next week and it works, I can have the rest of my birth process at the center. So, that's why it's temping.
I just don't know much about the medication. Success rates, safety for breastfeeding, etc. I've been doing some research, but nothing that's told me for sure one way or another if it's really safe. Would love to hear your thoughts!
