Hello, Jamison here, As A rule it is not A good idea to induce or allow labor early, Only YOUR personal doctor can tell you if you need to give birth early, There are A LOT of factors to concider when talking about labor,,,,,,,,, My wife was 6 months early, She and her twin sister were The eariest babies in the county where they were born in Cali. in 1982, There were all sorts of complications for the two babies that TOGETHER WEIGHED LESS THAN 3 POUNDS at birth.,,,,,,,,,,,,, Good luck, Jamison. Answer If you have been working closely with your doctor and the baby is a good weight and you are naturally going into contractions then you and your baby will be fine. Your doctor will decide on what is best for you and your baby. New mothers can have false labor and be in and out of the hospital expecting to give birth sometimes once or twice. Sometimes the doctor is forced to enduce labor or perform a C-Section if the baby has not dropped and there is no indication of the baby being born two weeks after the due date.
