Will you be asked to schedule your baby’s birthday this holiday season?

Being pregnant during the holiday season brings a special set of challenges as celebrations, travel, and family visits cause added pressure for expectant parents and their caregivers. Parents-to-be may want to show off the new baby to family, or take advantage of the help that family traveling from out of town can offer. Doctors and hospitals want their schedules free so healthcare workers can be with their own families for the holidays. Scheduling births through inductions is a common way to deal with these pressures, but there are some things expectant parents should know about induction as the holiday season approaches.
