This is interesting.
I have a friend who had a homebirth, and hemorrhaged. When she got to the hospital, she needed a blood transfusion, was put under general anesthetic, and was told that they might not save her uterus (they did, she went on to have another child). She was very close to death with this incident.
But... she was in a metro area, and it took them over an hour to get her to a hospital. If she'd been closer to a hospital it wouldn't have gotten to that point.
So, here was a MAJOR hemmorhage that could have killed her... and she's fine. The only problem was being located too far from a hospital.
That doctor is full of crap.
