"the Use of the drug oxytocin does not reduce the risk of caesarean section must be used for the lengthy childbirth, according to a study at the Sahlgrenska academy."
"the Researcher's conclusion is that the usual drug is used too much."
"Oxytocin is often given by drip to the parturient women, in order to stimulate the contractions. Basically, it is a hormone that the body produces itself, with the influence over the processes that our communities, pair formation and uterine function in the födandet."
"But the risk of a woman in a long, drawn-out confinement must be released by caesarean section does not reduce with the application of oxytocin. It shows a thesis of the midwife Lotta Selin, who studied data from the 2 775 births."
"Among first-time mothers with more than one days of childbirth was caesarean section in 17% of cases. In the normal course of events, the figure was just over two per cent."
"Oxytocin did not affect the proportion of caesarean section, even if the dose is doubled. The woman's experience of childbirth was not affected either. On the other hand, birthing an average of 23 minutes shorter."
"Lotta Selins conclusion is that oxytocin is used too much, although no adverse effects were seen in the study. The drip limiting the woman's freedom to move, and confidence in their own ability to feed can reduce."
