I had it on the table as an option "if medically necessary"... I also could have had it regardless of circumstance, or all out refused it regardless of circumstance. I'm not one to take meds that I don't need, however I am so glad I left it on the table as I hemorrhaged during A's delivery.
I didn't have an Iv though, until after it was determined that my bleeding wasn't slowing... at which time I was given a shot of pit.(that hurt really bad) followed by the nurse setting up the IV after the fact. He was born in the morning, and the IV came out around supper time (they had it blocked not long after the birth.
I dont think there is anything wrong with keeping your options open, in my case I really believe it saved me from much more serious complications. But it isn't necessary for every delivery IMO.
