- efficacy
- cost-effectiveness
- Timepointsall data will be collected from patient files after delivery:
Severe adverse events during outpatient period
Umbilical cord prolaps
Excessive bleeding/suspected placental abruption
Uterine rupture/ uterine scar dehiscence
Fetal demise
Non-reassuring fetal heart rate (FHR) tracing at re-admission requiring a caesarean section

Adverse events during outpatient period
Infection (defined as a temperature ≥ 38.0C)
Severe hypertension (> 160/110) or pre-eclampsia
Malpresentation at readmission
Non-reassuring fetal heart rate (FHR) tracing at re-admission
Early readmission for severe pain or anxiety

Adverse neonatal outcome
Apgar score <7 after 5 minutes or
pH in umbilical cord <7.00 or
neonatal admission to a NICU

Causal relation between (severe) adverse event/neonatal outcome and outpatient period judged by an expert panel
delay in acute medical care (yes/no)
Influence of delay on maternal and perinatal outcome (yes/no)

Perinatal morbidity until discharge
o Apgar score < 7 at 1 and 5 minutes
o pH ≤ 7.10 and pH ≤ 7.05
o Admissions to the neonatal ward/NICU
o Meconium stained liquor and meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS)
o Neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (RDS)
o (Suspected) neonatal infection or sepsis
o Necrotising enterocolitis
o intraventricular haemorrhage
o Periventricular leucomalacia
o Convulsions

Perinatal death
o Maternal morbidity until discharge
o Postpartum haemorrhage (defines a an estimated blood loss >1000 cc)
o Maternal post partum blood transfusion
o Maternal infection
 Intra partum: (defined as a temperature ≥ 38.0C) during labour or fetal tachycardia with start of antibiotics
 Post partum: Endo(myo)metritis or urinary tract infection within one week post partum (proven positive vaginal discharge/urine culture)

o Induction to vaginal delivery time
o Total admission time
o Mode of delivery (spontaneous, vaginal instrumental or caesarean section)
o Indication for instrumental delivery (fetal distress and/or failure to progress)
o Early readmission
o Favourable cervix at readmission

costs of induction
o Resource use will be derived from the Case Report Form.
o Different methods and sources will be used to estimate unit costs as valuations for documented volumes of resource use. For maternal and neonatal admissions, third-stage delivery and neonatal monitoring, unit costs will be estimated with data from the financial departments of various academic and general hospitals. For use of the labour room and the operating theatre, unit costs are calculated per hour, using a bottom-up approach. For some cost units national standardised prices will be used, and for laboratory testing, published tariffs will be used.
o Data concerning cost-effectiveness will be compared to data collected in the PROBAAT 2 study for women induced with a Foleycatheter. Details about the PROBAAT 2 study are presented in appendix 3 of the original study protocol

- Brief summaryInduction of labour is common practice in pregnancies at risk. A safe and effective method for induction is insertion of a Foley catheter. A number of Dutch hospitals implemented the Foley catheter in a combined hospital and outpatient setting. Whether this policy is safe in terms of maternal and perinatal mortality and morbidity is uncertain as large studies are lacking. We will perform a multicentre observational study in which women planned for outpatient induction with a Foley catheter are followed. Primary outcomes will be perinatal and maternal adverse events. Secondary outcomes will be efficacy and cost-effectiveness.
