I tend to think AROM and pitocin used when the body wasn't ready is a big reason why so many people end up with csections.

I think people get lucky when inductions and their bodies work together to create a successful vaginal birth.

But those are just my thoughts.

No, I get it, and I agree.
I think ready for induction isn't quite the same as ready and having "home remedies" work - for induction, if your cervix is ripe/favorable and baby is lower, those are good signs for a successful induction. But anything more natural I don't think will work even if your cervix is favorable, unless labor is/was imminent anyways, kwim?
