Risk of caesarean delivery 12% lower with induced labour

New research from Queen Mary University of London has found risk of caesarean delivery was 12% lower among women whose labour was induced, compared with women who were managed with a "wait-and-see" approach (expectant management). The findings are contrary to the popular view that inducing labour (starting labour artificially) increases risk of caesarean delivery.
