The patient was previously using an IUD as a form of contraceptive but decided on having a second child. The patient had originally attempted to have her baby via a natural vaginal delivery, however, multiple complications arose during labor which made a c-section necessary. Due to the irregular positioning of the patient’s uterus, the surgeon was not able to use the traditional techniques used in performing a c-section and had to use an unorthodox procedure in order to deliver the baby. Following the procedure, both the patient and baby were judged healthy and allowed to leave the hospital. Several days later the patient returned to the hospital emergency room with severe vaginal bleeding. A hysterectomy was performed due to a significant infection in the patient’s uterus around the c-section incision, and the woman’s doctors worried that her significant blood loss indicated an amniotic fluid embolism. The patient lost a large quantity of blood and nearly died before the hysterectomy was performed. An expert in obstetrics and fertility was retained for this issue.
