There is evidence that suggests a managed third stage can increase the risk and severity of PPH. I suggest research before making a decision.
Lonni, I'm really sorry that you had things done to you without your specific and informed consent. Regardless of whether it was lifesaving, it was also illegal and possible even defined as assault under the law. A general consent does not allow a doctor or midwife to do 'anything they want' to you by any means. There are countries that now classify procedures done to pregnant women (either in or out of labour) against her will as 'obstetric violence' and it's actually a crime punishable by law - if only Australia were so enlightened. http://www.theunnecesarean.com/blog/...n-venezue.html
Also, please be careful - there have been many women on these forums who have had obstetric violence done to them and are traumatised by it - being told that that's okay because that's just what doctors do is not only untrue but can also be harmful. For more information, the Birth Trauma section of BH is a good place to start.

Well I know this thread was originally about fetal monitoring, but it brought up other issues as well which is great as it encouraged me to question and research other things too, like placenta delivery.
After going home and talking to hubby and doing some research yesterday we eventually came to the conclusion that if everything has gone to plan and I'm low risk etc when I get to the 3rd stage that there is no reason why we couldn't aim for a physiological 3rd stage. But we both agreed to keep an open mind and decided that if I do decide to have the injection that its not the end or the world.
Not everything can be perfect and go exactly to plan after all - in fact being my first and having totally idealistic views of the whole process I'm sure I'm in for a MAJOR shock hehe!!
