Other mothers with induction said it was more painful than any other delivery. But, on the positive side, my step-daughter had labored for days at home with a naturopath, with nothing happening, and had to go for emergency induction, which brought the baby in 20 minutes. So in the case of my step-daughter, that was a real medical reason. I can't imagine what could be a religious reason for induction and I wish Scooter would give us the scoop on that.
Chinese take their astrology extremely seriously. Certain hindu sects take birth date as a serious matter as well.

My sister who had her baby yesterday, when she was pregnant with her first child she was induced cos she had severely high blood pressure, and when she was induced my nephew wouldn't budge at all so much that she had an emergency c section and this time round she said she'd rather have an elective csection so she knows what was going to happen!

I wouldn't be surprised if some religions were opposed to c-sections but didn't have a problem with inductions.

There's also the idea that you don't want your child born on a religious holiday (particularly one that's a set date every year), so you induce a bit earlier to avoid it. This would come into play if your due date is on Christmas or something similar.

I had a friend who was due at the end of February during a leap year and was really worried her child would be born on the leap day. The idea of him not having a birthday every year really bothered her.

That's not a verified story. Diana told it during the War of the Waleses, so it could have just been something said to make Charles look bad.

According to his mother during the War of the Wales so I would take a large grain of salt with that.

You never miss a good opportunity to show your deep affection for Charles do you ?

The source of the story is, of course, the Morton's book :

http://www.people.com/people/package...718889,00.html

At the same time Diana reportedly said "i had to be induced, because I couldn't handle the press pressure any longer, it was becoming unbearable,"

I had my second baby induced because I had an abruption that was dangerous for both me and my daughter. This was after a totally in eventful but long delivery with my first baby. The induction was much more painful, but also quicker. I still think going as natural as possible is best for Mother and baby.

Very good question! And I believe she prefers Catherine to Kate anyway.

In defense of Charles, he probably didn't know that induction wasn't the best way to produce the heir. On the other hand, Charles has studied medical matters relating to prescription drugs, but maybe his main study on this came after William's birth.
Thanks, Scooter, for the information on Chinese astrology and Hindu reasons for avoiding certain dates of birth. Confucius says: modern ignorance!

I can think of a reason to be born on Christmas if you are a royal: You can have the name Cristabel as Princess Alice did...and another royal as well, was it Princess Alexandra?

A c-section is major abdominal surgery with all the inherent risks that entails, including blot clots, stroke and even death. It's not just another way to have a baby. It should not be performed for convenience. I've had babies both ways (the c/s due to fetal and maternal distress - severe pre-eclampsia - that nearly killed both of us) and nature's way is much better! I was moving around just fine after my natural births but the c/s was a much longer recovery. Just sayin'...

KHOU News Houston (CBS) just reported Kate was on the way to hospital in labor. I don't believe anything anymore.
