midwife advised in her 20years she has never seen anyone suffer all three(induced, 3rd degree tear, post partum haemmorage) (so i dont wana frighten anyone, its very very uncommon, i have never ever met anyone who has suffered all 3!) so mw advised last time i opt for c-section if am to be induced again
