« At Your Cervix | Main | Why are moms so threatened?* »

December 15, 2007



Thanks for this well balanced information about induction. It is such a huge issue right now. I see so many moms being pressured into induction and it is scary to me.
The big baby scare is so typical! I have gathered some stories about moms who were told they would have big babies and their outcomes...


50-250%, that statistic is so scary! I sure would believe it, though. Wish I knew then, what I know now.

Thanks so much for your words about yoga. If you wouldn't mind, I would love to pick your brain on this issue. I am very unfamiliar with yoga, and it sounds like you have a lot to share.


Amy, please feel free to email me with any yoga questions! Kat


Thanks for the plug Sheridan! I checked out your site as well (and linked to it for today's post). Thanks for sharing!


Good post. Sometimes even homebirth midwives get a bit wiggy about long gestation. Goodness, the birth MONTH is supposed to be 38-42 weeks. Not 39.5-40.5 weeks!

I wonder how good the outcomes are for women who have their waters broken around 41-42 weeks? Especially if they're anticipating a "big" baby. Hmm...
