Pain During Induction

Contractions during an induction may feel more painful and intense for a variety of reasons. During a regular labor contractions will gradually build up and become longer and stronger. With an induced labor contractions general come on faster and are longer and stronger right away, not allowing you to gradually adjust to the pain. Sometimes women can also have a negative reaction the the medications which cause contractions to be too strong or long but the medical staff will be watching out for that and alert you to a problem.

    I was induce with my first two. The first one was what I call my "nightmare" birth. While I got pitocin with my second it was better than my first. I think because I wasn't out of it on drugs. I took nothing else and made it ok. I thought of my oldest daughter in a field picking flowers. :)
