If a OB patient comes in for induction due to suspected intrauterine growth retardation would you use 656.53 as admitting diagnosis?

Also, the pt delivered and the baby was fine, would I only code the induction proc code and no diagnosis code for this since the baby was 6 lbs 5 oz?

Lastly, is there a code for heavy lochia?
