Brief Summary:
The purpose of the present study is to evaluate the possible benefit of concurrent IV Oxytocin infusion with trans cervical Foley catheter for pre-induction cervical ripening.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pregnancy Induction of Labor Drug: Oxytocin IV Not Applicable

Induction of labor in term pregnancy may be challenging, especially in patients with unfavorable cervical conditions. Numerous trails have presented evidence of the efficacy of the trans cervical Foley catheter for pre-induction cervical ripening.The purpose of the present study is to evaluate the possible benefit of concurrent IV Oxytocin infusion with trans cervical Foley catheter for pre-induction cervical ripening.
