How I Almost Died After Childbirth At 38 weeks and 2 days into pregnancy, I had a visit Monday morning, May 20th, 2019, at 9:30 am. We were going in for a nonstress test, ultrasound, and an appointment with the midwife.Â The test showed babyâ€™s heart rate too high.Â She was in distress.Â A rushed ultrasound showed that she was now in the 3rd percentile, diagnosing her as Intrauterine Growth Restricted (IUGR).Â My blood pressure classified me as having Pregnancy Induced Hypertension.Â Basically, my placenta was calcifying and not allowing baby to get enough blood flow and nourishment.Â They said we needed to induce right away to allow baby to tolerate labor.Â I was wheeled to labor and delivery, admitted, and began induction at 1:30 pm. I still wanted to maintain an as low-intervention birth as possible. Even though I was on Pitocin to jumpstart labor, I had requested no pain medication.Â Active labor finally kicked in about 8:30 pm and my doula returned at 9 pm.Â In 43 minutes, I dilated from 4 to 10 cm. Baby was born after an intense, fast, and shocking labor at 9:43 pm.Â Problems in the Third Stage of Labor Afterward, the midwife and OBGYN kept asking me to push out the placenta.Â I pushed and pushed through a pounding headache.Â Only there was nothing to push.Â This was due to a â€œretainedâ€ or â€œstickyâ€ placenta, which wouldnâ€™t detach from my uterine wall. Over the next hour, I pushed, and then the midwife and then the doctor tried a manual extraction. Without pain medication, my body was nearly going into shock. At 10:45 pm, they decided to take me to the operating room to surgically remove my placenta. They gave me some initial anesthesia and wheeled me out of my babyâ€™s room.Â In the Operating Room During surgery, I hemorrhaged, losing at least 2 liters of blood.Â They placed a balloon into my uterus to stop the bleeding, but the bleeding wouldnâ€™t stop.Â They did a blood transfusion, but the blood they were giving me was flowing right back out.Â At 1:30 am, the doctor told Lucas that they hadnâ€™t been able to stop the bleeding.Â Then, my uterus wouldnâ€™t clamp.Â Once the bleeding got under control, I ended up in something called DIC, where my blood wouldnâ€™t clot. In the ICU By 1:45 am, I had arrived in the ICU, but my blood pressure was falling, and I became unconscious for at least 45 min.Â
