  • It happens. It happened to me with my second, but not with my first. Mine was 60 something over 40. I can't remember exactly.

  • It can happen and your provider should be aware yes

  • Happened with my first and I was hemorrhaging quite a bit. My bp was 64/38 and they gave me a shot of pitocin to help me shrink my uterus and something in the IV too. With my second I made sure the midwife knew about it and she looked over my records and said it was likely from the way he delivered the placenta the first time. She waited until she could pull it with a little tug and it came out on it's own and I had no issues at all.

  • Uhhhmmm... My NORMAL BP is 62/53. So that doesn't seem that low to me.

  • You need to tell them if you are using a different doctor or midwife. That blood pressure was dangerously low.
