Induction study

Hawke's Bay maternity is part of some exciting research into the best way of starting induction of labour. This study is running in nine hospitals throughout New Zealand.

If you or any one you know is having labour induced, check out this video for some more information.

The midwives and doctors will be able to discuss it further and whether participation is an option for you.



We welcome your feedback at all times. Please follow this link to let us know what you think.
