Hi Mina,

Please be patient.

There is no hurry to induce you now. As it is, your last delivery was through a C-section. Hence, your present mode of delivery will also be through C- section.

Please give some more time for the lungs to mature. Your doctor knows what is best for you. Trust her.

All the best to you.

A little patience will work wonders for you.
