After rates increased steadily for nearly two decades, a new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report notes a decline in induction of labor for single births.
Although the declines are very modest, going from 23.7% in 2011 to 23.3% in 2012, the news is encouraging, according to a CDC news release. Although delivery is medically necessary in some instances, delivery for a non-medical reason is not recommended before 39 weeks’ gestation. Risks of labor induction can include increased risk of cesarean section and, in some cases, increased risk for neonatal infections and neonatal respiratory complications.
