Depends on situation: Your question is a great one but was cut off. So your doctor is willing to induce under certain circumstances? I am not sure what he plans so cannot comment on the specific case. In general, a cervix that is 3 cm in someone who has had a previous vaginal delivery will efface by the due date. If discomfort, then some physicians will consider inducing labor (amniotomy, eg) each case varies though.
