New trend of birth induction is on the rise

Statistics reveal that one in 12 babies born in New South Wales are due to induced births and this new trend is supported by the obstetricians working at the private hospitals.

About 25% of the births are only after the mother is given drugs to initiate labour. //

The doctors when asked about the issue, say that the pregnant women prefer induction as they want that particular doctor to handle their pregnancy. The patients don’t want to undergo the risk of being handled by unknown doctors.

Robert Ford, the previous president for New South Wales (NSW) of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology said that pregnant women tell their obstetricians to induce birth whenever they feel it is posible for them to attend the delivery.

He said that at any cost they would never put the mother and the baby’s life at risk. But a lot of the inductions are done for convenience. In 2000 a very small number say one in 14 cases were induced for non medical reasons such as the mother's diabetes, high blood pressure, foetal distress, overdue or a week or more.

At present more safer techniques are used to induce the pregnant women. The women also on the other hand are old enough to take decissions about their delivery.

The number of inducions due to non medical reasons at the public Royal Hospital, Randwick have increased from 3.8 per cent to 5.8 per cent of all births.

Rob Buist, an obstetrician who was serving as the president of the body Women's Hospitals Australasia, said that they had all the rights to go in for an induction. One such case was that of a woman who needed to be induced for the reason that her husband would not be available then, as he was going overseas.

Dr Buist said that he would ellaborate on the risks of induction in case the woman who are having her first child as it would lead to an increased risk of a caesarean. But for subsequent births any extra ri sk was minimal.

Inductions are also useful in case of babies with known abnormalities as they can receive early treatment for their problems.

Statistics show that the highest rate of birth induction at New South Wales was at the Kareena Private Hospital in Caringbah (26.7% of all births) followed by The Hills Private Hospital in Baulkham Hills (25.6 %).

Michael Coglin, medical director of Healthscope Ltd, which takes care of The Hills Private and Prince of Wales and Nepean Private, said that the patients are wholly responsible for this increased birth rates as they engage the doctors for the delivery.
