Baby Preparation Essentials, Induction

Induction Preparation

Induction Preparation can be essential, even if you have attended antenatal classes because it helps to focus what you know on medical induction.

Induction can be straight-forward and it can also take some time. It is medical from the outset – very different from a spontaneous labour where you will spend some time at home – so it can be useful to know more of what to expect, to know more about your options and how to boost an induced labour.

Induction preparation can make a huge difference so you know more about:

  • the hospital induction facilities
  • what can boost an induction
  • what you can do to feel more comfortable
  • putting yourself at the centre of your care, saying what you need to do
  • using positions and movement for comfort and help your baby to move into a better position for labour and birth
  • using your breathing so you can be calm and focused, as well as more relaxed – which is crucial for induction

Induction feature as part of my antenatal course and 1:1 consultations can also focus on induction preparation.

There is also an article about Induction Preparation to find out more about the essentials.

An experienced specialist in pregnancy, birth & early parenting, I have worked with parents since 2002. I am based in the North East so I regularly work with parents from Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead and across North Tyneside. Face-to-face sessions will continue with North East parents but digital courses and online sessions means I can work with parents everywhere.
