Authors' objectives: Does induction of labour at 41 to 42 gestational weeks result in a decreased perinatal mortality and morbidity compared to expectancy with or without surveillance and how is maternal morbidity influenced?
Authors' recomendations: There is support for a reduction in perinatal mortality (GRADE ⊕⊕ ), a reduction in meconium aspiration (GRADE ⊕⊕⊕), reduction in the frequency of children with a birth weight> 4000 gram (GRADE ⊕⊕⊕) or some reduction in birth weight (GRADE ⊕⊕ ) and a more positive delivery experience (GRADE ⊕⊕ ) by induction of labour at ≥ 41 gestational weeks compared to expectancy. For other outcomes there is a small/no or uncertain difference.
