In this birth story episode, you’ll hear about Lauren and how she got both everything she wanted for her birth AND everything she didn’t want. After a beautiful birth that went smoothly, Lauren experienced a rare obstetric emergency called uterine inversion where the uterus turns inside out after birth. She lost a lot of blood and had to be rushed to the OR. Fortunately the repair went well and today she’s feeling grateful that the medical staff was able to save her life.
Now I’m going to be honest, sometimes I worry about sharing these rarer incidents because I don’t want to scare you or for you to think that I’m choosing more “sensational” stories. But then I remember that I am here to share the truth of pregnancy, share the truth of birth. Knowledge is power and you need to know what the possibilities are. Not because you can control the outcomes but because being prepared can make scary situations less overwhelming.
