What is Induction Season?
During this podcast episode, Ashley and I discuss the topic of induction. This show is meant to get you thinking about what you know about the reality of having an induction. We have an Induction 101 course that we include with our Hypnobirthing classes so parents have a detailed understanding of how induction works and what choices you have as parents to make informed decisions if you choose to have or medically need an induction.

When it seems like everyone you know has been induced – has it messed with you trusting that your body actually knows how to go into labor? Let us debunk the myth that your body will never go into labor on its own and emphasize that eventually, your body will give birth.
As educators, we are concerned about the lack of accurate and unbiased information provided to families about the risks and benefits of induction. We see first-hand the pressure or coercion parents experience in making the decision to induce or say no to the suggestion. Autonomy in decision-making and the need for comprehensive information will help parents possibly avoid birth trauma or regrets with their birth experience. Our Induction 101 course is a great addition to any birth education, whether your birth class was taken in or out of the hospital.
