Abstract

Prostaglandins for Elective Induction of Labour in Term Nulliparous Asian Women with Unfavourable Cervix

The aim of elective induction of labour is to reduce maternal and foetal morbidity and mortality. Studies have showed that if pregnancy is continued beyond 41 weeks, there is an increased maternal and foetal complication. However labour induction in women with unfavourable cervix especially if nulliparous, often may lead to prolonged labour and failed induction and high risk of caesarean delivery.

Keywords: Induction of labour; Prostaglandins; Nulliparous women
