For anyone TTC with infertility treatments:

A new infertility treatment works once…more babies are due, and the “experiment” continues.  This experimental procedure was used to treat primary ovarian insufficiency.  It sounds like these women experienced early menopause and their ovaries were coaxed to mature more eggs.

Another study that confirms Dr. Bradley’s saying “It’s Not Nice to Fool Mother Nature” – get all the information about elective induction before you say “yes”:
If Goldilocks Had a Baby
Babies born right on time fared better than those born at full term but slightly early
     “A recent study found that babies born at full term, but just a little on the early side, may experience higher risks for complications.
     A full-term baby is typically considered one born from 37 to 41 weeks. A premature baby is typically one born before 37 weeks.
     However, within that full-term range, babies born at 37 and 38 weeks are considered early-term births: they are born on the "early" side of "on time."
     These babies had slightly higher rates of admission to the NICU and higher rates for needing certain interventions after birth.”
