I'm looking to find some high quality scientific research about postpartum hemorrhage. I had a postpartum hemorrhage after the birth of my son due to retained placenta fragments. I want to have a home birth this time, and at first my midwife indicated that would be fine, but she seems to be changing her mind. I have several questions, but want research to back it up. Mainly:
-How likely is it that this will happen again?
-What can we do to prevent it?
-Comparison of active management of 3rd stage vs. not.
I must admit that I'm hoping to convince my MW it would be okay, but at the same time if the research convinces me the hospital is safer, than I suppose it's been worthwhile digging into it. I would like to leave things alone a lot more than I did with my first birth (AROM, cord traction, coached pushing) and wonder if that would help.
Any resources you can point me towards will be great! Thanks a lot!
