I'm 22 year old woman who is expecting my first child. I was expected to give birth on November 9, 2009, It is now November 12, 2009 and I'm three days past my due date. The day before I had a biophysical test and NST. The NST results were find, but the ultrasound showed that my fluid was a little low in the uterus. With this information it prompted my MIDWIFE to schedule a induction using cervidil. I decided i was going to go through with the procedure, but decided not to at the last minute. When i got home i read and did my own research on inductions and was not pleased with the results. I never thought my MIDWIFE would even consider a induction at just three days past my due date, which is one of the reasons why i left my regular OB/GYN, because i thought midwives had different perspectives when it came to childbirth. Another book i read besides your book is titled Your Best Birth by Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein, which states having low fluid is not a good enough reason to induce and that this low fluid count can be countered by bed rest and intake of more fluids internally. Now i realize you are not a medical professional, but that you do have child birthing experience. I'm just trying to find confirmation in the information that i have read and researched.
