I retained placenta, but I noticed until 6 weeks later, I had a really bad hemorraige with big clots, and had to get blood transfusion...anyways, my point is, is it considered medical malpractice? I asked an attorney already and he says that I only need an MD that states that it is medical negligence... what do you think? I just want the doctor who delivered the baby to recognize her mistake, that's all !!
Thanks for your opinions!! Ü
A hemorrhage can occur because of only a very tiny amount of retained membranes. Sometimes a shred of membrane stays in and you can't even see it based on looking at the placenta. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that based on what you're saying, nope, it was not medical malpractice. Sometimes sh!t happens, it's no one's fault.
At home amongst the redwoods with my husband and my son, born 7/5/11 Instant CNM, just add !
A lot depends on details.
Are you looking to sue? Most of the time you have a proof permanent damage.
If you are looking for apology, have an conversation with the doctor . Express your concerns. Ask her to explain what happens.
My Doctor one made an error that cause me 4 weeks of pain and a lot of antibiotics. She admitted and apologized. It was enough for me since i did not suffer permanent damage .
