Labor and delivery can be so scary. I feared not being in control of my body, pain, potential complications, and that something would happen to my baby. Having to be induced can make things so much scarier, especially if you believe people's horror stories. There are some really cruel things you could do to a woman being induced and, sadly, most of them were done to me.
Personally, the thought of being induced was terrifying. It was not what I wanted or a part of my "perfect birth plan." I was almost a week past my due date with my daughter and my blood pressure kept creeping up until it reached a level that caused my midwife to worry. To make matters worse, I had been having prodromal labor (non-productive contractions) for weeks and was in a lot of pain.
When I told my friends that I was being admitted for induction they:
told me their induction horror stories
told me I would probably have a c-section (in their minds a fate worse than anything)
Three years later I ended up needing to be induced at 37 weeks with my son, due to preeclampsia. I knew what to expect and had far fewer fears. This time, it was my midwife and my husband who were cruel, with their dismissals of my needs and shaming.
I think it's important to remember there's no universally "perfect birth." Some people need inductions to bring healthy babies into the world. Others need no interventions at all. It's best if you keep your thoughts, unless you happen to be their obstetrics provider, to yourself.
