I suppose you could refuse, but why would you want to if your fluid is very low? Low fluid levels can lead to cord compression, infecton, and a whole host of interventions during the birth. I would ask how low the fluid is, what the likely outcome of an induction would be, and what your best course of action to avoid further intervention would be. It would also be a good idea to find out if you are leaking fluid and how far you are dilated. Good luck mama! Your EDD is coming up fast, hopefully you won't need any help along the way. Here's to an uneventful office visit!
