    Glad it all worked out for them.

    I must say I prefer the UK version.

    Me too. The US one is so drug oriented.

    I thought pintocin was the synthetic version of oxytocin, which is a natural hormone released during labour?

    What an awful show. I would be embarassed to be a nurse in the US watching that crap. I can't believe that the older nurse (Susan? the blonde one) is claiming to be a patient advocate with her attitude. I don't know if I will bother watching it again, it is just disrespectful to women and overall sad.

    They are both synthetic versions it's just a different name. A synthetic version in a drip is nothing like how your body produces it during labour Sarah Buckley an Aussie GP writes about hormones in labour in her book gentle birth gentle mothering I'm not sure if she has put anything online about it..
