what are the chances that i haemorrhage again with my second child, can it be fatal?
5 years ago i had a bad birth, they didnt explain what happened much but from researching i gather i haemorrhaged.
They told me that my womb didnt close and i continued to bleed, had a transfusion and that was that.
im wanting to try for another but me and my partner are really scared it will happed again or something worse.
can anyone help? has this happened to you before?
Perhaps if you give us more details we can be more help. Most hemorrhages are controllable. When and how did it happen the first time?

I was 18 an hemorrhagedwith my first baby. It should already be in your chart, but just in case, make sure you tell the nurses at labor and delivery. What they do is start pitocin before the baby is born and then turn it up higher after the baby is born to stop you from hemorrhaging. That's what they did when I had my younger kids and I didn't hemorhage again.
Also, my best friend from elem. school hemorrhaged with her first. She had her 2nd last summer and had to have a C-section and didn't hemorrhage again.
