  • Im a little confused....if it was DURING your C-section, why would that cause your little one to be in NICU?? Is he still in NICU or are you having Post partum depression??

  • I've never experienced a placental abruption but I did hemmorage after giving birth. IT was VERY VERY difficult to deal with. I almost lost my life. I still to this day can't watch the video of my daughter immediately after birth because I'm screaming in the back ground from the pain of the doctor trying to get my uterus to clamp down.

    I'm not sure exactly what your question is because there is really no reason to be concerned now. It sounds like you and your son are both doing fine, physically, after a rocky start but if your concerned about your mental state I would highly suggest joining a birth trauma support group either here on cafemom or one in your community.

    Can I ask you a question though...did you spontaniously go into labor or were you induced? If so what were you induced with?

  • He was in there for two weeks, no he's home with me now. He was without oxygen and they don't know how long.

  • I had a placental abruption before the birth of my first child but she was born vaginally. She was not without oxygen. I bled a lot .

  • Did you have an ultrasound prior to the surgery, checking for an anterior placenta?
