  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess whether induction of labour starting in the evening, coinciding with the endogenous circadian rhythm, improves the outcome of labour compared to induction of labour starting in the early morning, organised to coincide with office hours.
