This is probably a strange question but here's my situation...
My blood pressure has gotten to the point where my doctor just doesn't feel it's safe to continue with my pregnancy. He wants me to come in this evening for an induction.
I expressed my serious concerns about being induced with pitocin & asked if he would be willing to let me try nipple stimulation first. He said yes but he wants to monitor me at the hospital while we're doing it since it can cause uterine hyperstimulation much like the over use of pitocin.
Thing is he said he's never done this with a patient before & isn't sure how many minutes your supposed to do it for, how long you rest inbetween, etc.
He said he's goig to contact a midwife he knows this afternoon to discuss it with her & see what she thinks.
He said he know how to monitor me but he's not sure about the nipple stimulation details.
I'm curious what did you HPC do with you?
