I live in a very rural area and the hospital that my midwife delivers at, the closest hospital that does deliveries, is about a 2 hour drive in winter. If we make it we do but I won't agree to an induction to make sure we make it. I would rather stay home If the roads are impassable, which is a very real possibility in January here, and have an unassisted birth than consent to an induction.

You are in a crappy situation.

Yep ^^ that. I would run run run away. If you have done unassisted before and feel comfortable with that then I would go that route. He is doing testing that I have never had done before and the induction is just stupid. I would be afraid that I would end up with a c-section. sorry mama.
