Is oxytocin (syntocinon, pitressin) dangerous in labour?

  Is oxytocin (syntocinon, pitressin) dangerous in labour?

As with many drugs, oxytocin (which, incidentally, occurs naturally in your body and is produced in the brain) is invaluable if used sensibly, but better not used at all if abused. In the vast majority of labours, it is used extremely responsibly with good fetal heart rate monitoring (CTG:cardiotocograph) and close midwife or obstetrician involvement. By co-ordinating contractions, it may allow you to have a vaginal delivery instead of a Caesarean Section.
