Two more reasons

why it is better not to mess with the natural process of labor:

Drug-induced labor increases complication risk

Babies can sometimes be injured during c-section

I guess I am lucky, my labor went relatively smoothly, and the only intervention I needed was an IV for fluids and glucose because I couldn't keep anything down. I know it isn't always that way, and sometimes interventions are necessary, but they shouldn't be routine.
