Just wondering what people's experiences are by being induced with the 24hr pessary ..

It didn't work and I had an EMCS after 6 days. The EMCS was an awesome delivery though smile

I had the pessary at 9 am, first labour signs at 6 pm and she was born at 6.50. No time to get to the labour suite so she was born on the induction ward. Home the same night.

I had the pessary about 8am Boxing Day, moved to labour suite some time in the afternoon and ended with EMCS at 3.40am 27th December. The pessary and drip gave me contractions but my waters had to be broken with one of those little plastic hooks.

I had the pessary at 2pm, started to get back pain etc by about 9pm, and DC was born the following day at around midday

Mine didnt work and had to be induced via hormone drip 2 days after. The midwife didn't break my waters properly so I ended up being 17 hours from drip to birth, whereas usually I think the drip can be quite quick

I had the pessary at 9.20am, first proper contractions around 6pm, baby born at 6.17am. Positive experience!

Pessary at 10am, contractions at 2.30pm, water birth at 5.30pm. It was great! First baby and 12 days overdue.

I had the pessary around 1am, started cramping almost immediately and these ramped up into proper contractions through the night. They were coming so frequently (6-7 in 10 mins) that they removed the pessary while waiting for the doctors to come and assess me. Was 6-7cm at about 9am so moved to labour ward and gave birth at 1.41pm. I never went onto the next stages of induction as my body did it by itself once kick-started - this isn't how it works for everyone though!

Don't they say that Pitocin is the drug of the devil? Avoid it if you can. It causes all sorts of problems that they don't bother telling you about-hyperstimulation, agonising contractions, sickness and, most significantly, a much increased risk of intervention leading to emcs. If the baby is fine, listen to your body and don't try and force something which isn't meant to be. Your body and baby will thank you for it! If you are induced, your body doesn't realise al the nice chemicals it would normally as the induction is forced. It causes a lot of issues, mainly the contractions are immensely more painfuland they don't gradually build up like natural labour. Induction is violent and not for the faint hearted. Shame the nhs try to play it down and don't inform people of the risks beforehand.

I had told my midwife I would refuse all induction attempts and would go straight for a C-Section. She did a big talk with me, knew I had done my own research and knew my own mind and had spoken to the consultant for me. It was then on my birth plan.

If you dont want an induction stand your ground.
