We are grateful for the opportunity to reply to the comments to our paper on maternal age and risk on cesarean section (CS) in induced labor at term in the Nordic countries (1) by Ole Bredahl Rasmussen (2). Rasmussen states that we conclude that women should be informed about a higher risk of CS if they have their labor induced compared with spontaneous labor. He underlines why a direct comparison of risk of CS risk in women in spontaneous labor with women having labor induced at any given gestational age around term, is irrelevant in a clinical setting for the patient (3). We completely agree with this reasoning. Our paper is focusing on the increasing risk of CS with increasing age among women having labor induced.
