Inducing labor


Childbirth involves danger. Gd protects women when they give birth, but this unique protection may not be extended to a situation which birth is moved up. Therefore, one should not induce labor in order to hasten birth, unless it is medically necessary.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:105:6)

Have a great day,
