I would be interested to know if any Mom's have had problems with post partum hemorrhage. I have two children, 2 years apart. With my first baby, I was admitted during active labour with high blood pressure. Immediately after delivery I had a major hemorrhage. I then had to go back into the hospital after I was home for 2 weeks for a D&C.

With my second baby, I was induced 5 weeks early due to high blood pressure, and again hemorrhaged immediately after delivery, but not as bad as the first time.

Both of these events preceded any other health problems by 15 years.

Does this situation sound familiar to anyone on this forum?

Hi Czecher,

Having not had any children, I'm afraid I can't advise you about Postpartum Hemorrhage from my own experience although I expect we will have other members who've suffered this problem and they may be able to give you some first hand information.

I've included another link here to Postpartum Hemorrhage which I hope you'll find interesting and informative.

Kind regards,

The only thing I have had is severe bleeding. I bled for 4 months straight, nothing they tried or did helped and finally they decided to do a D&C and place the Mirena. After another 4 longs months I FINALLY stopped bleeding. I have given birth 2x, but this happened years later. I always wondered if my issues and my diagnosis went hand in hand but no one has been able to tell me yes or no. So I guess mine is backwards from yours. I hope things have leveled out for you

I've been through three births, and didn't have hemhorraging with any of them. Had great blood pressure through my pregnancies, too. On the low side, even.
