(BJOG. 2016;123(9):1462–1470) Labor induction rates have been on the rise over the past 20 years in many developed countries, including the United Kingdom and the United States. Various methods are available for labor induction, and choosing 1 method over another depends on several factors, such as a woman’s obstetric and medical history, national guidelines and local protocols. Techniques also differ in their effectiveness and risk of complications. The present study aimed to assess labor induction methods using a comprehensive review and synthesis of the evidence in order to determine which interventions were most clinically effective and most cost-effective.
