Induction: avoid eating after midnight the evening before, be on time, and get some sleep. One of the big reasons labors fail is that the patient is too tired from being up all day and night to push effectively. Bring something comfortable to wear after the baby. If you get an epidural, kick everyone out of the room for a couple hours and sleep.
