So, I heard the following in the halls of the L&D ward a few days ago,
"Ooops, I guess she was supposed to get the pitocin, wrong chart" and off rushed the nurse. That is more than just a little frightening to think that someone on that floor was given the wrong 'treatment' and the wrong chart was being reviewed.
I sent a little prayer up right then that it was not a serious mistake and that the mom and baby were fine.
Just one more reason for a continuous, active advocate to attend you during labor and birth, whether it is a doula, your sister, best friend, mom, or partner.
