Common drugs during labor

Common Questions and Answers about Common drugs during labor


Avatar f tn Are there any other options besides an epidural that'll lessen the pain during giving birth.?
Avatar f tn Is anybody else's scared of poop during labor? What can I do to prevent it?
Avatar f tn Has everyone thought of pain meds during labor? Have u done research on how it can affect u & more importantly ur new baby? Obviously I am pro natural birth mainly bc mom's have been giving birth for thousands of years without any help. A woman gets to a hospital & thinks a doctor knows more abt her body than she does. New reports from the medical community is that an epidural can cause autism & a huge host of other problems.
1166767 tn?1315427171 lol Yeah I guess during labor that's the last thing on your mind. I just thought I'd ask since the other day even my husband said "Is it true you poop when you have a baby?
Avatar f tn In labor as we speak. Just got my epidural and I just want to say kudos to those of you who want to go all natural with no drugs or who have gone all natural. You guys are awesome this is my second and I could not do it with out the pain medication.
7249862 tn?1392252689 I didn't either thank goodness lol. I think that would be so embarrassing lol.
11803947 tn?1430842645 When I say natural labor I mean no drugs what so ever. For some reason lately I hear women say natural labor and they used epidural. I guess the definition was updated. ... Anyways. First time mom and I really really really want to have my little girl with no drugs. Deff a big NO to epidural. Yea I know some will say why go through the pain if you don't have to well we were designed to have babies so we should know how it feels.
Avatar f tn m talking with the doctor this Monday to discuss medication and what-not during birth. Is it common for them to suggest I have a cesarean? I would like to give birth naturally... but as I can't walk up a hill without my heart going into super drive...
Avatar f tn it is considered normal as well although less common. also just as am FYI with the having an accident during labor thing, most women even those who have been constipated get diahrea when going into labor, i think it has to do with the pressure from the baby or something, but it is very common to have diahrea when going ingot labor even if you hav'nt had it before! good luck and yes it's normal!
448723 tn?1301454958 I'm hoping for...well I'm, labor scares me. I don't wanna rip. I think I would honestly rather have a c section than go through regular birth. I'm sure that's not gonna happen, but that would be nice.
5624774 tn?1374284525 Everytime I see someone post about using drugs while pregnant, several people usually comment about drugs showing up in the baby's first poop (starts with an "m". I don't know how to spell it lol). Do they test every single baby when they are born or just if they suspect drug use? I'm honestly just curious. I've never used drugs or even smoked a cigarette in my life. So they test for drugs and alcohol? And how far back does it show?
548642 tn?1266179652 exposure to radiation, infection), asphyxia before birth, hypoxia of the brain, and birth trauma during labor and delivery, and complications in the perinatal period or during childhood.[3] CP is also more common in multiple births.
Avatar f tn Everyone's experience is different. Just like every pregnancy is difference with severity of symptoms, so is labor. My sis in law had labor pains that while painful, weren't that bad. I understand why she had 4 kids. Mine were HORRIBLY painful. Some long and some short. You have to take that into consideration. Best bet is to play it by ear. If you can handle it naturally, go for it!! If you can't, it's okay.
Avatar f tn t give it to you until your at least at a 5-6... But I also know the epidural will slow down your labor so much! My mom had iv drugs with me and that even slowed here down like 2-3 hours. I'm just going to suck it up (getting induced Monday). I have a high pain tolerance, but I would rather labor as quickly as possible and have my son here.
18524847 tn?1465595901 This article is a pretty good description of what might go down on the big day. Check it out. So, everyone is different. Some go for a more natural birth and others are like "give me the drugs". I think that making a decision that suits you is essential with no pressure to please others. After all, YOU are the one who is going to be experiencing the full effect of the big push.
Avatar f tn I had a vag swab at the hospital and they just called me back saying I had a growth. The nurse said it's extremely common amoung pregnant women, and if I had no symptoms there's no reason to treat it. I never had it with my first. Does anyone else have this?
2026433 tn?1337650833 t taken any classes but what are some breathing techniques and different positions I can try during labor to help me get through it this time. What should I do different I really do not want that epidural again.
Avatar f tn In my opinion, it would be safer to take a category b drug than to continue to have a bacterial infection. Bacterial infections can cause preterm labor as well as other symptoms. Tylenol and many other drugs are class b drugs and they are deemed safe. I would do what your doctor says asap. I don't have personal experience with this buy just my thoughts on the matter. Good luck and get well.
Avatar f tn ll be mentioning some things you may want to consider for pain relief during your labor. Because the main goal of this group is to have a natural birth those things will be emphasized but I will talk about other options you may want to consider in the event of induction or cesarean. The most common drugs used in birth are pitocin (synthetic oxytocin) and the epidural. Pitocin attempts to start labor or push labor along in an already laboring woman.
Avatar f tn They give you IV drugs and break your water to get labor going. I was induced with my first and it was awful. I would not ever do it again unless necessary. A lot of times it will end up in an emergency c-section because the drugs tend to cause the baby to go into distress. I'm not saying this happens all of the time, but its pretty common. Be prepared, do your research and take any concerns you might have to your doc.
Avatar f tn They can get very sick and getting the antibiotics helps them so much in preventing that. They administer the antibiotics via i.v. method during labor to help baby. If you're having a c section there's nothing to worry about since the baby will not be passing through.
2075786 tn?1342908758 Anyone know how common it is or what the chances are of having a missed miscarriage after hearing the babys heartbeat at 9 weeks?!? Im trying to stay positive but its not an easy thing to do.....
