Hi ladies,

Not sure where to go with this.  My youngest LO is 4 months old.  I had two completely natural hospital births after two completely normal pregnancies.  After the birth of my second daughter, my placenta wouldn't deliver.  They took me in for a D/C and when I woke up, I was stunned to find out that they had had to perform and emergency hysterectomy.  We are grateful I am alive and grateful by DD2 was perfectly healthy but a day doesn't go by when I don't grieve this.  It was a shock, to say the least.  I feel somewhat alone in the mommy community as this is rare but even more so in the natural mommy community that I love so much.  Whether I like it or not, I would have been one of those failed homebirths-a hospital transfer at best, dead at worst.  I am so happy for friends who are pregnant but am so sad I'll never carry another LO again. We were excited about having many more children.  Anyway, anyone deal with this? Ever?  Would be great to here others perspective.  It certainly was incredibly traumatic. . .

I am so sorry. I haven't experienced it, but it is on my mind pretty often as I am a previous c/s mama and the risk increases after that. I will say that I've been a nurse caring for mom's who had the same thing that happened to you happen to them. It is heartbreaking and often times we, as nurses, felt like there just weren't words to say. It just seems so unfair and I'm sorry you're having to go through this.

Hi Cera611,

I rarely come to Mothering anymore, but did by chance today and saw your post (I realize it is a few months old). Just wondering how you are doing.... I don't have much time to write at the moment, but the short version is that I had an undiagnosed increta that resulted in an emergency hysterectomy a little over 2 years ago.  Traumatic to say the least.  I still grieve although it is not something I think about every day. 

Thinking of you....



Here is a link to my original post after my second daughter was born.
