I had my third baby 5 weeks ago.
I had a VBAC, started feeling very sick while pushing, blood pressure dropped and started vomiting allot. Then I started loosing lots of blood, postpartum hemorrhage, went in to DIC, lost over 9 pintes of blood, 16 transfusions, taken to OR to try to save my life, lung collapsed, small stroke which hopefully meant nothing, intubated in ICU for a few days. Woke up in ICU with a chest tube. They don't know why it happened and they say there must be some underlying problem. Breastfeeding is extremely important to me but I barely have milk, my prolactin is 20. Placenta was in good shape and came out on it's own.
