Whoa, Momma!

Sharon Kennedy Wynne, Tracey Henry and Suzannah DiMarzio

Did you or would you induce early?



Reporter Richard Martin is doing a story on the practice of inducing labor before 39 weeks when there is no medical reason to do so. There are mothers who request this for different reasons (convenience, their husband is about to be deployed, etc.) and he's looking for some recent new moms to talk about the issue.  Have you ever requested an induction of labor before 39 weeks? Or are you pregnant and thinking about having your doctor induce labor before you reach 39 weeks? If so, the Times would like to speak with you for a story on the subject. Please contact health reporter Richard Martin at or (727) 893-8330 before Friday.
