I have a few risk factors which my caregiver has informed me put me at higher risk of post-partum hemorrage.
I want to be mentally prepared for what interventions to treat that are like from the point of view of keeping baby skin to skin and those other more personal things that are important to me. I have a lot of information from a technical perspective.
Is anyone willing to share how they dealt with this at your birth? Were you able to hold your child during uterine massage or while pitocin or other drugs were administered? Did you need a blood transfusion?
How did your partner handle it? If you weren't able to hold your baby, was he? Or did you prefer to keep him close by is possible?
Sorry if this brings back dark memories.
