this is true of any narcotic that mom takes in labor, which is why, here, they cut you off the narcotics after you are dialated to a 7/8. that usually gives enough time for the narcotic to clear you and baby before delivery. Here they also keep, in the delivery nurses pocket, the drug to reverse the narcotic, for the baby. all drawn and ready to go, jsut in case it is needed. my nurses had this with my stadol, it wasn't needed, but it was nice to know they were prepared just in case.
