New Study Has Important Findings for First-Time Expectant Mothers

A new study published in The New England Journal of Medicine finds that first-time expectant mothers who are induced at 39 weeks gestation are less likely to have cesarean sections. More than 6,100 healthy women participated in the trials at 41 hospitals around the country, including Cleveland’s MetroHealth System. To learn more about the study and why women might want to be induced early, ideastream's Rick Jackson spoke with Dr. Edward Chien, division director of maternal-fetal medicine at the MetroHealth System.
