I just attended a birth with a mama in a very similar situation as yours. She had a low dose pit induction and had a pain-med free birth to a 9.9lb little girl (her first was 10.9). I walked her through some hynobabies with each contraction. Everything went swimmingly till 30 mins after. I feel like her midwife wasn't proactive enough (she actually left immediately to go catch another baby) and this women had lots of bleeding problems which resulted in her needing a transfusion. It wasn't super dramatic, but definitely not as good as it could have been.
Aside from that, most low dose pit inductions work out GREAT if you have a patient care provider who will let you labor at your leisure. It can take a long time, but most moms don't complain about the labor being unbearable like normal pit inductions are.In about 1/2 of the low dose pit inductions I have attended, the pit is eventually turned off and the woman labors on her own once active labor is established. I haven't attended one where the mom opted for an epidural or where birth plans changed drastically. Hope that makes you feel better!
That makes me feel great to hear. Thank you!!! I may take them up on it. I'm having a size ultrasound on Wed and another sweep but I'm thinking baby wants to stay in awhile. We have discussed in great lengths that the midwives will be extremely proactive this time and not allow any time without medication in my system post delivery for a good 12 hrs until I'm stable. I'm feeling better about that, but would still like to avoid the large baby trauma to the uterus.
