Sources: Martin to stand in if baby calls away Gordon
By Marty Smith ESPN.com
May 23, 2007
If Jeff Gordon is forced to miss a race to attend the birth of his daughter,
series veteran Mark Martin will man the No. 24 Chevrolet, multiple sources
within the Hendrick Motorsports organization told ESPN.com Wednesday.
If baby early-MM, If baby late-MM.
Labor induction is the answer!
You do realize that labor induction increases the risk of fetal
distress which results in a higher likelihood that the infant would
need to be delivered through cesarian section and / or spend time in
the neo-natal intensive care unit, right???
But of course you would find the increased risk to both the mother and
infant insignificant in comparison to Gordon's racing.... thankfully
Jeff seems to have his priorities straight.
If the baby is at full-term, there are non-drug things a doctor can do
to start labor that doesn't endanger mother or child. I think the
baby will likely be born on a Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday, myself.
sorry Nancy, that just isn't true. There are no ways to induce labor
that do not potentially cause a risk to the mother and child. Whatever
steps a doctor could take (drug or natural) could cause the infant to go
into distress. I can cite multiple sources to confirm this if you
really want to debate it, but I really don't see the point. Gordon
clearly understands the facts and has made the appropriate preparations.- Hide quoted text -

Well, based on my personal experience and my top of the line ob-gyn,
we'll just have to disagree. (Note I said "full-term," not a day or
I am speaking of full term pregnancy risks, Nancy. Virtually all of
the conventional wisdom out there indicates that the risks exist, even
in full term pregancies, and that labor should only be induced when
the risk of continuing the pregnancy outweigh the risk of induction.
Here are just a few of the many articles out there, you and your "top
of the line ob-gyn" are free to disagree with them. These articles
discuss both drug induced and naturally induced labors, and in neither
case are the labors risk free. Again, apparently Jeff and his wife
took this information into consideration, and in my opinion, were
quite wise in doing so.
and from USA Today:
Potential complications from induced labor can include:
· Maternal stress - In most instances, Pitocin drastically compresses
delivery time. "The contractions begin quickly and they are typically
quite powerful and strong," says Hackmeyer.
· Fetal stress - The unborn baby's heart rate increases rapidly and
the repeated strong contractions may reduce oxygen.
· Increased risk of bleeding, infection and hysterectomies - The
longer the uterus undergoes the severe contractions caused by Pitocin,
the greater the risk.
I believe I said "non-drug." In addition, what my ob-gyn and I
discussed, and did, was nothing that was actively inducing labor, but
something that helped move the birth along when I was overdue. I'm
not going to be more specific than that, as the guys are probably
already bored by this female talk. I have my views; you have yours.
Doesn't matter - we'll never agree unless we meet to hash it out, and
actually, that doesn't interest me in the least. I'm way, way past
child-bearing age, and have no daughters, so it's of no import in the
grand scheme of things.
