The first delivery went OK, 36 weeks, but had to be scooped out like a pumpkin afterwards. Not a word to me what happened. Baby #2 showed up 15 months later 2 weeks early and delivery went ok again, but this time when they tried to remove the placenta a hell broke loose, I was rushed to emergency surgery, had 2 blood transfusions just to stop the bleeding. Again, no word from ANYONE who was caring for me told me what was going on! I looked up my issues when I got back to work and found out that the normal procedure for this is a complete hysterectomy! Why was I left in the dark? And was I more prone to this because it happened before? I'm so mad and sad I wasn't told what was happening to me.
