My midwife dropped off my home birth "kit" that contains oxytocin, and the meds for the baby. When she showed up she handed me one container and said, "Your medicine needs to go right in the fridge" so I put that one in. The kit is a large tool box, so I asked what was in that and she explained and said I could have a look if I wanted. I looked later and there was more medication in there(oxytocin is one of them). I assume she would have told me if I needed to go through and put the other meds into the fridge, correct? I just thought the one she handed me was the one that needed refridgeration, and I'll ask about it but I am sort of worried about ruining everything! I'm due in less than 2 weeks now.

id give her a call, dont worry about ruining anything! pitocin is actually fairly cheap so even if it needs to be tossed it's only a couple bucks .
