Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Induction of labour may be indicated in the maternal or the fetal interest, and is more likely to be successful if physiological mechanisms are replicated. Induction of labour in the presence of an unfavourable cervix presents the greatest challenge and pharmacological techniques must encourage cervical ripening if we are to advance our management of this common obstetric intervention.
