“BMI-Associated Labor Induction: A Prospective Trial”
The primary objective of this study is to determine if planned induction of labor at 39 weeks for nulliparous with pre-pregnancy BMI a?Y 35 kg/m2 reduces the incidence of cesarean section compared to expectant management
Procedure - Labor induction
The study intervention is labor induction from 39 0/7 to 39 6/7 weeks. The individual labor induction process will be at the discretion of the physician or midwife managing the subject's care. Methods of induction that may be used include misoprostol, intracervical Foley catheter, oxytocin, and/or amniotomy. Participating clinicians will be encouraged to use only one course of cervical ripening followed by oxytocin infusion and amniotomy.
