I wouldn't worry about it. I am a labor & delivery nurse and hemorrhaging is not a common thing. Next time your dr will probably put the complications of your previous delivery in your prenatal record. This way the nurses will know what caused it and can be aware of anything they may need to do differently. VBAC is an option you could just discuss with your doctor. Different drs feel differently about it. Just use a dr you trust and deliver somewhere you trust.

How long after the C-section did you start to hemorage or was it during .. They say that this is sometimes normal.. The passing out part is due to after affect of meds thats what they told me.. I hemoraged alot when I was home 3 days later and felt very faintish and the doctor said that happens and it would pass.. Also about having another baby.. was this a planned C-section? or Emergency.. If not planned maybe you can consider  a VBAC..  Unless it was planned for what ever reason just talk to your doctor and see what your options are.. Don't get discouraged or scared.. Hope this helps..
