Unfortunately, when the unit is very busy, we may need to delay your induction, so you need to be aware that your induction date is not guaranteed. We understand that this is very disappointing however the safety of you and your baby is most important and so sometimes this decision is the safest option due to the pressures on the unit.
We ask you to phone the ward on the morning of your induction to check that we have a bed for you. We will then advise you on when to come in or whether there will be any delays. This does not happen very often but when it does the consultant on call will look at each individual case and prioritise who needs to come in first.
