Well, the headline says it all. UCSF’s Aaron Caughey has just published a meta-analysis in Annals of Internal Medicine that shatters the dogma of elective induction’s being associated with cesarean delivery. I hope you’ll enjoy the conversation.

There won’t be a Clinical Conversation next week — I’m taking a week off — but the chit-chat returns in two weeks.
