Leapfrog has asked hospitals to reduce elective inductions to 5% of their total deliveries for 2011. Louis, reported 63% of women who attended classes on the risks said the classes influenced their decision not to have early elective induction.

The hospital gives pregnant mothers laminated cards with questions to ask the doctor if they feel intimidated.
