    "ADVERSE REACTIONS

    The following adverse reactions have been reported in the mother: Anaphylactic reaction, Postpartum hemorrhage, Cardiac arrhythmia, Fatal afibrinogenemia, Nausea, Vomiting, Premature ventricular contractions, and Pelvic hematoma.

    Excessive dosage or hypersensitivity to the drug may result in uterine hypertonicity, spasm, tetanic contraction, or rupture of the uterus.

    The possibility of increased blood loss and afibrinogenemia should be kept in mind when administering the drug.

    Severe water intoxication with convulsions and coma has occurred, associated with a slow oxytocin infusion over a 24-hour period. Maternal death due to oxytocin-induced water intoxication has been reported.

    The following adverse reactions have been reported in the fetus or infant:

    Due to induced uterine motility: Bradycardia, Premature ventricular contractions and other arrhythmias, Permanent CNS or brain damage, and Fetal death.

    Due to use of oxytocin in the mother: Low Apgar scores at 5 minutes. Neonatal jaundice, and Neonatal retinal hemorrhage."

    Unfortunately sometimes it comes down to syntocinin or c-section. It's good to be informed of the POSSIBLE reactions, but don't scare yourself silly about it.

    *shrug* I've had 2 vaginal births, #1 was all natural No drugs. #2 was an induction no pain meds. 1. was 5 hours 2 was 1.5 hours. My second labour was by far the easier labour, contractions were easier/less painful just all round a more pleasant birth.

    So while there is 100 articles telling you of bad experiences, there's just as many good ones. It's just the good ones aren't worth writing about.
