I came out on my own at 43 weeks. My son came out on his own at 39 weeks. My friend's child came out on her own at 27 weeks. Children come on their own at a wide range of times, sometimes whether or not it's healthy for them to do so. I'm sure your son was very healthy and was ready to come out at 38 weeks. That would have been 5 weeks early for me. Individual variation doesn't mean that 38 weeks is the same as 40 weeks across the board.

The thing is, the mother is still the patient first and foremost and the mother still has autonomy over her own body.

I would call that a husband issue, not a feeding method issue.

Forgive me for jumping in late but I wanted to comment on this.


I think it's all about perspective.

I hadn't heard that but I am not surprised. 36 weeks was the equivalent of 40 weeks when I was pg with twins, and they are starting to find that older moms can't go to 42 weeks as easily as younger moms can, but for a healthy single pregancy and nothing high risk, the attitude toward induction astonishes me sometimes. As though it's really no big deal and nevermind that skyrocketing c/s rate, that's no big deal either. Don't even get me started on the shrinking availability of VBACs...... Ugh.
