Description

The purpose of this study is to use an "active management of risk" model for labor induction (AMOR-IPAT) published by Nicholson et al. to determine the optimal gestational age for induction of labor. Using this model, we will demonstrate a decrease in the cesarean section rate in the study vs control group. The control group will be managed according to current standard of care by ACOG (American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists).
