Quoting applelove:" I am watching an episode of 16 and pregnant. The girl asked her Dr if she could be induced early because ... [snip!] ... to have a c-section. I think if the girl would have waited until she went into labor then a c-section could have been avoided."
I don't know if they think they should be comfortable, but I know if at a certain point it is causing more stress to your body than you or the baby can take, they'll induce you. I was pretty little with my first and they wanted to induce me, I asked them if I could wait at least until my due date, he came 3 days early.
