Table 1 Baseline maternal and fetal characteristics among participants with term pregnancy who were candidate for induction of labor

From: Pre-induction translabial ultrasound measurements in predicting mode of delivery compared to bishop score: a cross-sectional study

Category   Number (percentage) Mean (SD)
Age (years)    25.13 (4.4)
Initial weight (kg)    63.69 (10.3)
Initial BMI (kg/m2)    24.12 (3.4)
Weight at the time of IOL (kg)    76.04 (1.1)
BMI at the time of IOL (kg/m2)    28.80 (3.7)
Cervical length (mm)    20.60 (6.6)
Fetus weight (gr)    3334 (393.6)
Fetus gender Male 46 (46 %)  
Female 54 (54 %)  
Bishop score ≤5 77 (77 %)  
>5 23 (23 %)  
Time between IOL and initiation of contractions (hour)    2.0 (1.1)
*Time between IOL and initiation of cervical dilation (hour)    2.14 (0.8)
*Time between initiation of cervical dilation to 4 cm dilation (hour)    4.12 (1.6)
*Time between cervical dilation of 4 cm to 10 cm (hour)    4.60 (1.5)
*Time between full cervical dilation to labor (hour)    3.12 (2.7)
Delivery NVD 57 (57 %)  
C/S 43 (43 %)  
  1. BMI Body Mass Index, C/S Cesarean Section, IOL Induction of labor, NVD Normal vaginal delivery, SD Standard Deviation. *Time intervals between IOL and cervical dilations (to 4 cm and then to 10 cm) are only measured for patients who had vaginal delivery. In patients who had inadequate progression of cervical dilation, C/S was performed
