Abstract

Ambivalence in Australian thought on induction of labour, despite recent evidence, stands out in contrast to ever-increasing rates of this intervention. As consent obligations on information provision have crystallised in maternity care, this article examines whether consumer-led expectations and legal obligations may precipitate change to end the cultural stigma around induction of labour.
