induction
i am wondering if anyone else had issues with pitocin--ive had 6 kids and 2 of them were induced using it, and both of them had/have reflux really bad.  from talking to others, ive noticed that they seem to be linked.  and from alot of reading, i would have never even allowed them to give me pitocin if i knew the side effects.  i only had pitocin, no pain meds, with any of them.  let me know what you think!

I did not know any of this.. thank you for the information..

My plan is to go natural, but I have never been through this before, so I really don't know what to expect or how it will work out.
