Honey my water just broke, lets head to the hospital
You haven't had any contractions for the past 12 hours
After monitoring you and the baby closely it is time to start you on oxitocin to get the contractions going.
Oxitocin comes in two forms, petocin and syntocinon. It is used to stimulate contractions in the uterus. It increases the concentation of calcium inside muscle cell that control the contractions in the uterus
What is oxitocin and how does it work to start the contractions
Chances are that you will still be able to have a natural birthing experience. The side effects are nausea,vomiting, allergic reactions and bleeding after the baby is born.
I really wanted a drug free birth, will it still let me labor naturally without side effects
Will will continuously monitor baby's heartbeat throughout this process from the minute we start the petocin injection.
What about the baby?
The petocin made my contractions a lot harder but we had a speedy delivery.
