Abstract

Post-term pregnancies are associated with high rates of maternal and perinatal complications. In such cases, labor induction is often performed to reduce the risk of adverse outcomes as an alternative to expectant management,. Induction of labor is one of the most common procedures, and occurs in 10-20% of births around the world, conducted in obstetrics, but its success, in most cases, depends on cervix maturation. Here is areview article, whereis described modern pharmacological agents that usedin the world forlabor induction and for cervical ripening.
