just curious if anyone else's dr gave them a dose of pitocin post delivery to help speed up the contractions to shrink their uterus. A few weeks before my due date my mom had mentioned it to me to ask my dr for a dose after delivery. Needless to say I totally forgot to even bring it up bc I had only made it to one more scheduled appointment before delivery. However right after delivery my nurse told me she was placing pitocin in my IV for just that. I hadn't read or heard of this from anything I had previously read in regards to delivery and postpartum care, is this a common practice though?
