Katelove: I appreciate your questions.
The dr. mentioned that it's when the shoulder comes out. I don't know much about this, since I heard about this for the first time at my last appt. and wanted to check here first.
What caused the bleeding is the baby coming out very quickly.Not a lot of time between head and everything else. Nothing I could prevent, and no tearing on my part. They wanted to give it right after the birth but I wanted to make sure I really needed it. They gave it to me about 30 minutes later, because it was obvious that the bleeding was strong, and my doula - who is very natural told me to get it at that point. (I was ready to push before arriving, but held myself in, to birth at the hospital and not on the way, so as soon as I got on the bed, the baby was out, and the nurse was telling me to wait for the doctor. By the time she arrived the baby was halfway out already. My other births were also pretty quick though.)
The dr. told me it's the hormone Oxytocin that would be given earlier. Not the medication I received after. I don't remember the actual name, it's in my file which is at home now.
Hustvik: Therefore, you recommend it or not?
I just googled it: Is this what is used as an induction in birth?
