Description

This article reviews of methodologies for the induction of uterine contractions so that labor may occur. Physicians induce labor to promote vaginal delivery and to prevent complications of obstetric intervention. These complications are diverse and lead to cesarean section. Labor induction rates levels rose from 9.5% in 1992 to as high as 23.8% in 2010. The rates have been fairly stable since then.[1]
