That was Child # 2 for me… was forced pitocin and a VBAC. They believed I had low fluids, so the nurse literally gave me a pill, told me to take it, or else ‘my baby might die’.. then told me to get in my car and drive to the hospital (it was my 37 week appt) … then, to make sure I went — she got in her car and followed me there.
Yes, I had to drive myself, 15 minutes after being given pitocin.
At least I still got my VBAC. But being forced into labor was only partially better than being forced into a C-section. (Baby was fine by the way… their machines had miscalculated the whole your amniotic fluids are leaking bit..
