Haemorrhage following Caesarean section

Success story

Juno had a Caesarean Section in November 2006, following a trial of ventouse. The baby was in good condition, but she suffered a massive postpartum haemorrhage. The bleeding was only controlled by a hysterectomy with internal iliac artery ligation. Harrie thought that both the delivery and haemorrhage treatment were negligent. PMS Expert Report concluded that Caesarean Sections performed in the second stage of labour have a high complication rate. There was evidence of an area of unusually adherent placenta, a condition also associated with severe post partum haemorrhage. Nevertheless, if the apex of the wound had been secured earlier, there would have been no such complications. The case was not pursued further.
