Inducing Labor

Your doctor may decide to induce labor if the situation calls for it. There are many medical reasons for inducing labor. Inducing labor is a decision that must be carefully considered by your doctor.
You may be tempted to ask your doctor to induce your labor for convenience or because you are tired of being pregnant. Listen to your doctor's advice.
The length of your labor is extremely individual. It varies from pregnancy to pregnancy and depends on how many pregnancies you have had.
With a first pregnancy, the first and second stages of labor can last 14 to 15 hours, or more. A woman who has already had one or two children will probably have a shorter labor, but that's not always the case.
