Pitocin and ADHD, is there a link?

The movement towards natural birth is on the rise, but why? Is it because it's a fad or is it because people are slowly starting to realize the dangers of all of the new interventions occurring in birth and the rise of many developmental disorders in our children?
Many different factors can lead to one thing, I do believe this. However, we should not rest on this fact and neglect even the smallest of connections to modern intervention in birth land.
If we learn that Pitocin and other drugs used unnecessarily and routinely in labor lead to any change in the development of our children then we deserved to be informed. We not only need to be informed but we NEED this type of research to continue so we can remove even the smallest of factors that can contribute to anything negative in our children and provide them with fair chance.
Here is some research that has come out that concludes that there seems to be enough of a connection to warrant further, larger, testing.

Holistic Care for all

We are very excited to announce the expansion and growth of Natural BirthWorks.
We at Birthworks, IBCLC Sandra Lobaina, and Licensed Midwife Gelena Hinkley have had the long desire to have a "holistic community" of sorts for families. We have always wanted to have one place for natural families to come and receive all their health and support needs.
Since we now will have a bigger space, we will be able to offer so much more to the women and families in our area of South Florida.
Natural BirthWorks will be the home to many providers, support groups, and classes. Some of which include:

-Midwifery Care
-Holistic Well Women GYN care
-Chiropractic Care
-Lactation Services
-Childbirth Classes
-Placenta Services
-Prenatal Yoga
-Mommy & Baby meet ups
-Natural Baby Boutique
-Educational Classes and Seminars
-Babywearing Classes
and SO much more.
