You might consider a doula who is supportive of uc, or a friend to help out. I understand if that seems like the wrong thing to do though.

I see I'm a bit late to the game for the OP but I hope everything's going great and there's a newborn happily with mom. Maybe my last post will be helpful to someone else sometime.

I don't have experience with induction, but I'd think you'd want to give yourself plenty of time to allow it to work. Like, make sure you go in when you still have a couple days leeway so you can go...
