Rectal cytotec probably saved my uterus, if not my life. I had an accidental UC of VBAC twins and I had PPH in the hospital when we got there. They tried pitocin first, then methergine, and nothing was working. I was passing out from blood loss. Three whole tablets of Cytotec rectally stopped it. I think my hem level afterwards was an 8--we were talking transfusion at one point. So while I would not want a midwife that induces with Cytotec, I'd be pretty happy to have it shoved up my bum again rather than die. FDA or not. We're doing homebirth this time and my midwife would probably have me eat some placenta first, and try some herbal solutions, but if that doesn't work you won't hear me complaining that she carried some Cytotec.
