    Pitocin is sythetic oxytocin. It is used to stimulate uterine contractions. Questions are being raised about a pitocin-autism link if anyone finds that kind of thing interesting.

    unfortunately australia is heading down a very similar path as america.

    for a great history analysis of how birth came to be like that watch ricki lake's (yes, the talk show host!) doco 'the business of being born'.

    when i think of the number of women that died due to twilight sleep......horrible. and yet a lot of mother's blindly follow what doctors and nurses tell them.
