2 bags of pitocin, no baby?

has anyone else had this happen? My SIL was induced with pitocin. She had 2 doses of it and still didn't go into labor? She went home that night and is hanging out at my house right now until her next non stress test tomorrow.

  • Yes, induction is basically trying to force a process to start that the body and baby aren't ready for (that's one of the reasons 40% of inductions end up in a c-section) I'm glad to hear that she got sent home instead of them trying to push her further and having it end in c-section.
