Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Anterior uterocervical angle (the angle between the anterior border of uterus and cervical canal) will be visualized by transvaginal ultrasound and the printout of the screen will be used to measure the anterior uterocervical angle by a protractor. the larger the anterior uterocervical angle is, the easier the parturient can give vaginal birth. 5 minute observation immediately prior to induction of labour, ultrasound performed upon admission to ward until induction of labour.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 305771 0
determination of anterior uterocervical angle
Timepoint [1] 305771 0
before starting labor induction, after patient admission to ward, anterior uterocervical angle will be assessed by ultrasound.
Secondary outcome [1] 346495 0
cut-off limit of anterior uterocervical angle will be determined by measuring the anterior uterocervical angles with a protractor on the ultrasound images of the parturients who had a successful labor induction and give normal vaginal delivery.
Timepoint [1] 346495 0
before starting labor induction, after patient admission to ward, anterior uterocervical angle will be assessed by ultrasound.

Summary
Brief summary
In this prospective observational study we aimed to determine the predictive power of anterior uterocervical angle on labor induction. secondary outcome of the study is to determine a cut off value for the anterior uterocervical angle that will guide the obstetrician to start labor induction .
