When people talk about inducing labour, they are referring to induction which is a means of artificially introducing labour in a pregnant woman; artificially rupturing a woman's membranes; certain intravenous administrations; and cervically-applied prostaglandin.

It is important to note that in case there are complications resulting from an induction, there is almost always a Caesarean section conducted.

Induced labour is not all that uncommon. Some of the common factors which call for an induction would include, the belief that the baby might be getting too large; health risks posed to the woman involved in continuing the pregnancy; a postdate pregnancy; Premature membrane ruptures; Intrauterine foetal growth retardation; possible scheduling concerns; and premature termination of the pregnancy (that is, an abortion).
