Hi, I had three massive PPHs after the birth of my first son. 1.5L at birth, 2.5L at home on day 9 (lucky i was 5 minutes from hospital), and a further 1.5L on day 11. I had to have surgery to clamp my uterus shut, and its not clear why this occurred. I had a borderline low lying placenta but was told a natural delivery was safe.
Has anyone else had a similar experience and had a second child without further issues?
My son is 22 months and (i think) I am ready to have another but scared out of my mind.
I have a specialist appointment in March.

sorry for the late reply - i don't usually come to this section of EB.
I had an Amniotic Fluid Embolism which caused my blood not to clot after an emergency CS and my uterus had to be "massaged" to get it to shrink down. I had lots of staples and catheters put in place to stop the bleeding. Sort of similar. I had quite a few transfusions during and after surgery, plus bled (like a period) for three months after birth.
You need to talk to a OB who knows a lot about these sort of things. Good luck with it all.
I have known women who had similar experiences to me to go onto have other children with no further problems - however an OB is best placed to give advice.
If you are in Melbourne and unhappy with your specialist, PM and i will give you the details of my OB.
