Topic: How long is too long?
This question is mainly for those going the more natural route. In regards to another post about being "over due" I am curious to know when you all think you should be induced? For those that don't already know, I'm having a home water birth, but also have a backup CNM (midwife) for the hospital. At 42 weeks my primary midwife will not deliver me outside of a hospital so care is then transferred to the CNM. Technically I can go over my due date as much as I want because no one can force me to into the hospital for an induction. Both midwives recommend not going more than 42 weeks past my due date, especially because I am 100% sure when my lmp was. How far past due date would you be comfortable with if everything seemed fine with you and baby?
