Method: A prospective cross sectional study was conducted at Imam Hospital Karachi, Pakistan, from 20th July 2020 to 20th Nov 2020. 80 women with singleton pregnancy fulfilling criteria of NHS guidelines for induction of labor were included. Women with previous cesarean sections and required emergency cesarean sections in current pregnancy were excluded from study. Prostaglandin E2 was inserted vaginally after assessing bishop’s score. Indications and mode of delivery were main outcome measures. Frequency and percentages were calculated by SPSS Version 20. Result: The most common indication of induction of labour is post term pregnancy (37.5%) followed by PIH, and preeclampsia (25%). 73.75%women delivered successfully by vaginal route and 26.25% were delivered by cesarean sections. Failure of induction occurred in 11.25% women undergoing induction. Conclusion: Induction of labour is safe and effective in well selected women.
