There is a score that your OB can rate you on for favorability for induction. It is called the Bishops Score.

A Bishop Score of >8 describes a woman who is most likely to have a successful induction of labor
A score >9 means that labor is eminent anyway
A score < 6 typically requires a cervical ripening agent (typically Cervadil) prior to beginning a pitocin induction

I think I was very low 2-3 but was LGA so I was induced anyways. I did have an epi but did not require a c-section.
