Hi, I've been following the girls in the 3rd trimester forum who are all late and I've been interested to see that most people are in favour of induction due to going over your due date. This is a topic I'm quite interested in as carrying babies late runs in my family - my mum was 2-3 weeks late with all of us, my aunty was 3 weeks late with her daughter, and my sister was 1 week late (but she's the black sheep of the family lol). I've always thought that induction should only really be used if the baby is in distress, and that you can keep an eye on things with monitoring. People keep telling me that as you go overdue the placenta stops working properly, but as far as I can tell it's only a small risk and that some women naturally carry their babies later than others. I've even heard that if you live in a colder climate, you are more likely to go overdue. So I guess I'm just curious about what other people think about induction because of being overdue?
