Evaluation of breast stimulation for induction of labor in women with a prior cesarean section and in grandmultiparas.

Segal S, et al. Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand. 1995.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Information on the efficacy of breast stimulation for inducing labor in grandmultiparas and in women with a previous cesarean section with or without premature rupture of membranes is limited.

METHODS: Retrospective study of labor data from 135 women of grand multiparity or those with a previous section with or without premature rupture of the membranes in whom labor was induced by breast stimulation.

RESULTS: The success rate in achieving vaginal delivery was 84%. The duration of breast stimulation, length of labor, vaginal delivery rate, and Apgar score did not differ significantly among the four groups studied.

CONCLUSION: Breast stimulation in grandmultiparas and in women with a previous cesarean section is efficacious and safe.
