    Hi Girls
    Some hospitals/Obs have stopped using pethidine but others continue to use it.
    The side effects are very simular however there are some suggestions that morphine does not produce as many side effects as pethidine. Morphine is also a more natural drug where pethidine is a more manmade drug. Morphine also lasts a little longer than pethidine.

    I had pethidine with DD1. It was given to make me sleep. She didnt appear to have any side effects of it once born either.

    I had morphine when I had dd2 a week ago that was at tweed hospital, so yeah I would assume that each hospital is different!
