  • hematoma is essentially a bruise. What exactly are you talking about?

  • Was it an assisted delivery, meaning did they use anything to extract her out? A hematoma on the head is actually very common after birth. It should go away within a few days.

  • do you mean hemorrhage? That is completely different than a bruise

  • Hematoma, hemangioma, and hemorrage are all waaaaay different things. Hemorrage is a major loss of blood. Hemangioma is a bunch of raised blood vessles - lay-man's name is a strawberry birthmark, because it looks like a strawberry. Hematoma...I've never dealt with so I'm not positive but it's not like either of the other two. So...which one is it?
