Brief description This study aims to compare two approaches that prepare pregnant women before they are induced to give birth. Eligible women who agree to be in the study will be allocated to receive (a) the usual, standard care already used in SA hospitals or, (b) a new method. In the new approach, women will have their labour primed by a midwife and will be discharged and further monitored by the midwife from hospital. This approach might give women a more satisfying experience with less medical intervention.
