Meh, I've had pitocin with 3 births and it was always medically necessary.

I was 8 days late with borderline pre-E and was extremely sick (bed rest in hospital) ... so I had to decided pitocin, c-section, or wait and possibly lose both of us. So yeah I chose the pitocin.

Well, some people need pitocin.. :?
Way to scare anyone who's about to have a medically necessary induction, if this had been posted when I was about to go in for my necessary induction I would have been way more scared than I already was.




Much much safer than Cytotec, at least..

Oh and as for the pioneer women do you have any idea what the % of women who died during childbirth or neonates that died either inutero or during birth were? Don't be an idiot.

I felt guilty enough that my body wasn't able to birth 'naturally' ... this would just have made me worse.

I needed it....they put in the least amount they could and then stopped the drip to see if my body would keep labor going which it did.



It's not THAT horrid.

that is the biggest piece of bullshit propaganda.

I'm pretty anti-induction, and not a big advocate of any unnecessary medications. However... that list is a load of crap, incomplete, inaccurate, and blows things out of proportion.

Really? allergic reaction as a reason? the bedsheets can cause a reaction too...

A lot of those complications..... are complications of LABOR... and would be there with or without the pitocin. Others... are effects of stress on baby... which would be WORSE if the mother was allowed to continue with nonprogressive labor.

low APGARs? how so? it doesn't say. lowest APGAR's are usually given to C-section babies.... which without pit.... most of THOSE babies would have been.

I understand she wants people to wait until their baby comes naturally but sometimes a medically intervention is necessary no matter what the mother wants.

Most people who do get pitocin, get it for medically necessary reasons. My daughter had the fetal monitoring on her head, she had a tiny cut on her head and it did hurt going in because I wasn't really dilated when they put it in, but it was better knowing for sure she was safe.



And thanks for scaring the women who need pitocin for medical reasons, that is a bit fucked up.

My Dr. Gave it to me too sped up my labor when it started to slow. I was ok with it because I didn't really want to be on labor for 3 days or something...call me selfish if you want. I'm fine. Each to thier own I guess. Guess

Like I said ladies, if you had read the whole thing, I listed reasons where it is considered medically necessary to use Pitocin, which is most of the reason y'all are saying.



If you don't like what I had to post, simply don't read or reply! :)
