: Although the definition of preterm birth is birth before 37 completed weeks, the major transition in terms of needing special care occurs between 34 and 37 weeks.
Material and Methods: A prospective observational study was conducted among 60 patients admitted in the Department of OBGY, NC Medical College and Hospital, Panipat from August 2018 to June 2020.
Results: There was a total of 60 deliveries during this period. The preterm induction majorly includes 20-34 years as this is the commonest reproductive age group seen in our hospital. More number of Hindus underwent induction. Multigravida requires induction more as compared to primigravida. More number of patients were induced between 32-36 weeks, reason being PPROM, severe preeclampsia, IUD and severe FGR.
Conclusion: Induction of labour remains relevant obstetrics procedure and its outcome will depend on proper choice of patients and close intrapartum monitoring.
