I had a strange birth of my first child. We transferred to the hospital after 3 hours of pushing (I felt the crown of DC’s head at home), my MW had a “pissing contest” with hospital staff, my MW helped me by relieving a blood clot in my uterus, I lost LOTS of blood, fainted…drama, drama!
Anyway, I never talked seriously with my MW and I’m curious specifically about why I hemorrhaged. I really feel like *I* needed some additional medical assistance after the birth so I’m somewhat content with the transfer but if I get pregnant again I definitely want a homebirth but I worry about all the bleeding.
My question is specifically about how a request for a summary of the birth 3 years later would be received by my MW.
This is also the first time I’ve talked about the birth here and I sure would love some thoughts, advice or commiseration.
Troll? Here's me...
