Worldwide 20-30% of labour cases are
induced. We conducted an analysis to evaluate the
success of labour induction for indicated preterm birth
A prospective observational study was conducted
among 50 patients admitted in the Department of
OBGY, MGM Medical College and Hospital,

There was a total of 50 deliveries during this
period. The preterm induction majorly includes 20-34
years as this is the commonest reproductive age group
seen in our hospital. More number of Hindus underwent
induction. Multigravida requires induction more as
compared to primigravida. More number of patients
were induced between 32-36 weeks, reason being
PPROM, severe preeclampsia, IUD and severe FGR.
