Question: someone tell me the incidence of pitocin allergy How do you manage the third stage of labor without pitocin?

Answer: I'm a Labor and Delivery Nurse...and in all of my 15 plus yrs of doing this, I have never once seen an allergy to pitocin! Pitocin is just a man made version of the hormone your pregnant body already produces during pregnancy... As far as managing the 3rd stage without it... The 3rd stage is when the baby and the placenta has been delivered....most often pitocin is injected in the pt's IV to help the uterus contract. It doesn't "have" to be used, but more often then not it is...
