This pamphlet explains what will happen when the balloon catheter is inserted, possible complications of a balloon catheter and when you should call or return to the hospital. The French version of this pamphlet 1814, "Déclenchement artificiel du travail et maturation cervicale au moyen d’un cathéter à ballonnet", is also available.
