I had a home birth with my dd, which went perfectly, except I retained the placenta and my MW had to manually extract it...not an experience I care to repeat. She told me that if she were with me the next time I birthed, she would give me a shot of Pitocin immediately after I delivered next time to ensure that I didn't stop contracting. That sounded like a fine plan to me, except I'm not sure how I would go about getting Pitocin without a midwife this time around.
As an alternative, I've seen Placenta Out mentioned on this board. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with it. I like the idea of using something herbal rather than a synthetic, but want to Make sure I have something that is going to work if I need it.
