Why is Cremaffin emulsion advisable during pregnancy?

Hi, 6 to 7 days before delivery doctor has prescribed Cremaffin emulsion to initiate the delivery process. My Wife is not suffering from any complication related to during that period and her health is normal, so I advise her to NOT administered Cremaffin emulsion (She not administered single dose of it).1) As per data in it leads to fetal injury and also mentioned on few website contradictory medicine in pregnancy. Please advise its safe or not? If the pregnant lady is normal (means she is not suffering from any constipation like issue) then why doctor prescribed it 2) As per doctor cremaffin used to initiate delivery process, then why it’s not mentioned in USES of that drug or in indication?
