Abstract

If the prediction of induction success is to be used as a tool to lower the frequency of a first cesarean delivery, such prediction would need to be among women who are undergoing elective induction, and would need to indicate which women are more likely to have cesarean if they are induced as opposed to expectantly managed. This review summarizes the data that link elective labor induction and cesarean delivery, as well as the factors (or lack thereof) that may be used to better understand which women who are induced ultimately have a vaginal delivery.
