Molly Murray - Birth, Life, and Business Doula
Have you ever been or are you planning to be induced with cervidil?? I have been to many births that started with cervidil but I'd never actually seen it! So when I was at a birth at the time of cervidil placement, I knew I wanted to capture this mysterious .... ripening agent... and share it with you, in case you're like me and have heard of it (and maybe experienced it), but have never seen it!
Pictured here is the glove that the nurse planned on using, the lubrication that she would use while placing it...and the cervidil that would be inserted into the vagina and next to the cervix, to hopefully begin the thinning of the cervix.
You can read more about cervidil's purpose, benefits and side effects from their website here.
Are you interested in learning about your options for physical and emotional support through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum, no matter your medical decisions or plan?
From a water-birth at a birth center to a medical induction in the hospital, I support you!
