  • I did. It drugged my baby, and lasted for 30 min. Not worth it at all. IV meds pass directly into the placenta. Supposedly when given long enough before the baby is born your body *metabolizes* it too fast. It's a stupid theory because they don't know WHEN the baby will be born.

  • i agree, not worth it. i was given morphine against my word (they deemed it absolutely necessary and said i had no say in it) and it drugged up my son =/
