Study investigates whether pregnant women are willing to go home after an induction

A study conducted by St George’s, University of London is discovering if pregnant women who need inductions will opt to go home after the process has been started in hospital. 

120 women are being recruited across two sites; St George’s Hospital in Tooting, and at the Medway Hospital in Kent. The study randomises low-risk women who have agreed to the process to either a new mechanical method, a trans-cervical balloon catheter; or to a pharmacological method, a Prostaglandin vaginal suppository.
