Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The proportion of women with cervical ripening success [ Time Frame: Within 12 hours of vaginal insert administration ]
    Defined as either Bishop Score (BS) ≥7 or a vaginal delivery


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of nulliparous and multiparous subjects with cervical ripening success [ Time Frame: Within 12 hours of Investigational Medicinal Product (IMP) administration ]
    Collected labour data and delivery data

  2. Proportion of subjects delivering vaginally [ Time Frame: Within 12 hours of IMP administration ]
    Collected labour data and delivery data

  3. Proportion of subjects delivering vaginally [ Time Frame: Within the first admission to hospital ]
    Collected labour data and delivery data

  4. Proportion of subjects with a BS increase ≥3 points from baseline [ Time Frame: Within 12 hours of IMP administration ]
    Measured by BS assessments

  5. Proportion of subjects who have a caesarean delivery within the first admission to hospital [ Time Frame: At time of delivery ]
    Data collected during the first admission to hospital

  6. Proportion of subjects who receive pre-delivery oxytocic drugs and dose of pre-delivery oxytocic drugs [ Time Frame: From the IMP removal to delivery ]
    Collected pre-delivery data

  7. Proportion of subjects who undergo mechanical cervical ripening [ Time Frame: At least 60 minutes after the removal of the IMP ]
    Collected labour data

  8. Duration of mechanical cervical ripening for subjects who undergo mechanical cervical ripening [ Time Frame: Time from at least 60 minutes after the removal of the IMP until end of any mechanical ripening ]
    Measured as start date and time of first mechanical ripening and the end date and time of last mechanical ripening

  9. Proportion of subjects with BS ≥7 [ Time Frame: At onset of labour ]
    Among those having onset of labour while IMP is in-situ

  10. Time from IMP administration to onset of active labour [ Time Frame: Interval from IMP administration to onset of active labour ]
    Within the first admission to hospital

  11. Time from IMP administration to vaginal delivery, caesarean delivery and any delivery [ Time Frame: Interval from IMP administration to delivery ]
    Within the first admission to hospital

  12. Type, frequency and intensity of intrapartum adverse events (AEs), postpartum AEs and neonatal AEs [ Time Frame: From obtaining the informed consent through end of trial (expected average of up to 1 week) ]
    Assessed up to time when the subjects are discharged from the hospital

  13. Type, frequency and intensity of intrapartum AEs [ Time Frame: From obtaining the informed consent to the removal of the IMP ]
    Assessed up to time when the deliveries occur

  14. Change in maternal parameters of vital signs (blood pressure, heart rate and body temperature) [ Time Frame: From baseline through end of trial (expected average of up to 1 week) ]
    Assessed up to time when the subjects are discharged from the hospital

  15. Change in maternal parameters of haematology, clinical chemistry and urinalysis [ Time Frame: From baseline to end of trial (expected average of up to 1 week) ]
    Assessed up to time when the subjects are discharged from the hospital

  16. Proportion of neonates with Apgar Score <7 [ Time Frame: 5 minutes post-birth ]
    Measured as Apgar Score assessments

  17. pH in umbilical artery blood samples [ Time Frame: At birth ]
    pH evaluation

  18. Rate of admission to neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for at least 24 hours [ Time Frame: After delivery ]
    Admission/discharge data from NICU

  • Diagnosed congenital abnormalities, not including polydactyly
  • Suspected or confirmed intrauterine growth retardation (≤ mean 1.5 SD of normal estimated fetal weight for dates)
  • Any evidence of fetal compromise at Baseline visit (e.g., non-reassuring fetal heart rate pattern, meconium staining, history of non-reassuring fetal status or abnormal umbilical artery Doppler wave form)
