Induction of labour is where labour is started artificially. In Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board over 30% of women are offered induction each year. There are many reasons why you may be recommended to have an induction of labour. Your midwife or doctor will discuss this with you if needed.
It is always your choice whether you are induced or not. Below is our Induction of labour leaflet which explains the process. If you have any concerns or questions please contact your midwife or doctor to discuss this further.
