Even though it was not a part of my birth plan and not how I imagined giving birth, being induced wasn't so bad. After I got over the boredom, pain, fear, hunger, anger, anxiety, and pretty much the entire spectrum of human emotion that it caused me to feel, of course. I know I am not alone. There are things every mom thinks when she's being induced. It's totally normal.
When I was admitted for induction the first time, I was terrified. Most of my friends experienced unmedicated births, and I had heard a ton of rumors about induction being the worst thing ever and leading to unnecessary medical interventions and emergency c-sections. However, I trusted my midwife and knew that sometimes babies need a little help in order to enter the world and remain healthy. For me, holding my healthy baby was worth the pain, hunger, boredom, and fear. When I had to be induced a second time, I knew what to expect. I had a little less fear (thank goodness), but still couldn't wait for it to be over. In the end, my induction turned out to be a beautiful experience. Well, beautiful after I finally got an epidural.
My inductions were proof that no matter what happens and how things progress, birth is completely badass. Don't let anyone tell you differently, moms-to-be, especially the voices in your head.
