Fellow doulas and midwives have always suspected - actually we know this - but it is good to hear the powers that be admit it. Let's face it - natural hormones are what got us pregnant and they will get us un-pregnant. The moment artificial oxytocin is administered our bodies say - OH, Hey hormones we're not needed here and they shut off. BUT we need those hormones for so much more.
ALl my four children were born by cesarean, the oldest I had 12 hours of pitocin. He was the one who had the hardest time in school, he is the one who has aspergers, he is the one who still struggles to this day. I won't blame pitocin or anything else BUT you have to wonder what all of these interventions do. Do we really want to take that chance.
