Washington Hospital Quality
A service of the Washington State Hospital Association

What is this?

Medicine is given to start labor without a medical reason. Lower is better.

Why this matters?

Labors that are started by medicine, or induced, are more likely to end in a c-section which has a greater risk for complications for both the mother and baby.

Technical Description
