Arriving at the hospital at 2 am , 2 weeks late , I was advised
to return home as I was in the early stages of labor .
Another nurse felt my belly, feeling all baby , and stated
she wasn’t going to listen to the doctor’s orders to hold
my labor back, because he did not want to come out .
Instead I was given another drug , yet another very poor
choice for our baby ..
how close I came to loosing our 1st child , who presented
2 weeks , late , 9lbs 2/3 Oz and 22 ” long , with his cord
wrapped around his neck 3 times , his skin bluish purple
and asleep .
Doctor, Sonogram , all off .
I sent roses to my delivery nurse who took charge
and a letter to the OB , who ignored the struggle
for life created , the addict , the disconnected
mother- child , that becomes a mental or behavioral
health issue .
It’s way past time for clarity and responsibility from
all health practitioners/professionals , that all are not
tainted with such grievous practices .
Blessings & Peace ,
The risks associated with pregnancy and Demerol use should be considered by women who plan to receive this pain medication during labor and delivery. Demerol, a narcotic used for pain management and sedation purposes, has not been determined as safe for women to use during pregnancy but is approved for use during the process of childbirth. Since Demerol can cause expectant mothers to experience side effects and babies to experience withdrawal symptoms, the use of this drug must be monitored.
