"Without having listened to your episode on postpartum hemorrhage, I imagine it would have been even scarier. I felt like I was able to be involved in the decisions being made about my care, as opposed to things just being done to me."
“Hello, I wanted to send a note letting you know how much I have appreciated your podcast throughout my pregnancy. In fact, your recent episode on postpartum hemorrhage was very useful. It gave me the information I needed to make informed decisions and understand what was happening with my care and why. I delivered my son about a week ago one 5/26 and unfortunately had a postpartum hemorrhage. My midwife and doctor attribute it to parts of my placenta being retained. They tried about 5 medications to control the bleeding (most of which were ones you referenced on the podcast so I was familiar with them) but that wasn’t enough so they manually tried to scoop out the retained tissue, but even after that ultrasound still showed a small piece being retained so I had to go for a D&C. It was a scary time but thankful they were proactive in managing it and I didn’t have to go back in later with infection or continued heavy bleeding. Everything has been good since the d&c with minimal bleeding.
Without having listened to your episode on postpartum hemorrhage, I imagine it would have been even scarier. I felt like I was able to be involved in the decisions being made about my care, as opposed to things just being done to me. I attribute this to a great care team, but also the information I learned from your podcast.”
