Abstract: Smith (2003) found unexplained stillbirth occurs once in 2000 births (0.5/1000) after 34 weeks among low risk second pregnancies, following a first vaginal birth in the absence of induction for postdates. If induction for postdates could prevent stillbirth by expediting the deliver, one would expect to save 0.5/1000. Four systematic reviews performing meta-analysis of the data regarding the effect of induction for postdates draw three different conclusions. Cochrane (2012) concludes that inducing at 41 weeks can prevent 1 stillbirth/perinatal death for Continue reading
