With my son I had a lot of bleeding..after he was born the first push for the placenta resulted in an explosion of blood, tons of huge clots, anemia, tachycardia, couldn't breathe, etc.<br>
With this pregnancy I'm not so much worried about me. But I'm worried about the baby/placenta. What if the explosion of blood was a clot from the placenta starting to detach before birth (if that makes sense)?<br>
I read a birth story from a fellow MDC mama today where she had an abruption minutes before birth and the baby died. Now I'm freaked out.

I hate to sound like a pregnancy guidebook, but I think this is a topic you should discuss with your midwife. She should be able to either reassure you or come up with a plan of action.

I'd get my records and talk with a couple of health providers to get a couple different answers to help me make my decision.

Ok, I think that's what I'll have to do. Thanks!
