Abstract

The recently published ARRIVE trial demonstrated that “policies aimed at the avoidance of elective labour induction among low-risk nulliparous women at 39 weeks of gestation are unlikely to reduce the rate of caesarean delivery on a population level”. In this commentary we discuss some controversial aspects of the study that in our opinion may undermine its validity at wide population level.
