Pitocin is chemically produced Oxytocin. When labor is stalled, or delayed, artificial induction with this drug is used to speed up labor. The labor started with Pitocin quickly progresses to a series of strong hardly controllable contractions accompanied by sensations of discomfort and emotional instability.
A recent study discussed in the "Doula International" Magazine links the use of Pitocin to elevated statistics of autism.
The article says that the labor and birth induced with artificial synthetic oxytocin, rob the woman and her child of the natural production of it in their brains and therefore, destroy the emotional link between the mother and the baby.
Later in life this link is non-existent when the forming identity of the child has no reference point about major human concepts of "love", "bond", and the child is emotionally disconnected from mother.
