    I believe that Pitocin, is a trade-name labor (childbirth) stimulating drug. it is used to induce labor.

    Brandon is correct.  If for any reason, they are trying to induce the baby they would use an intravenous solution containing pitocin.  Inducing a baby means bringing on labour by medical means.  The woman is brought in and the pitocin drip (pit drip) is set up.  The pitocin enters her body drop by drop until labour is started.
