What the manufacturer says about using Pitocin for elective inductions
Here is the insert included with Pitocin, which is given in an IV drip to induce labor. It is a very good tool to help with post-partum hemorrhaging. It is a great tool to help deliver a placenta that is having problems detaching from the wall. It is a great tool to help start labor, when it is medical indicated. However, the maker of this medicine states it in not to be used for elective inductions.
Elective induction of labor is defined as the initiation of labor in a pregnant individual who has no medical indications for induction. Since the available data are inadequate to evaluate the benefits-to risks considerations, Pitocin is not indicated for elective induction of labor."
