Hello!  I haven't posted here in a LONG time, but I have a friend of a friend who needs help, and I don't remember much and I've given away all of my childbirth/pregnancy books.  

 

She's 41 weeks, and she has an appointment this afternoon.  Her dr. is pressuring her to induce, saying that every day overdue increases the chance of stillbirth, etc.  

 

Can anyone point me to some studies/articles/books that she could quickly find/read to arm her with some solid info before her appointment?

 

Thank you so much!

Luckily, she went into labor on her own later that afternoon!

ETA: I'm not sure how the labor went, but I got the impression it was good.
