I had my 28 week appointment yesterday--everything with baby is great. However, I had to have a discussion with the OB about my wishes to not have an IV during labor. They said I can still do a block, but I don't even want that. Last time I had a block and after I had my son, she said she was going to pump "fluids" into my body to help with dehydration, then later I found out she had Pitocin in there, too.
I know it is very standard to use Pitocin for after labor, but is it truly needed? I plan to breasfeed as immediate as I can after birth, so I will be getting oxytocin to help with cramping, ect. What are your thoughts?
