Pregnancy after placenta abruption

pregnancy after placenta abruptionI would love to hear from those who suffered a placenta abruption during pregnancy and have gone on to have other pregnancies. Just wondering what your experiences were in a pregnancy after placenta abruption.

  • I had the same thin lost a baby boy at full term in 2009 since then have had another boy healthy but had extra check ups all threw the pregnancy and was induced 2 weeks early I also had another bleed and went into surgery to stop the bleeding hope it helps Tracee
  • I had a placental abruption in 2011 at 25 weeks with my twins. They survived for a week in the NICU before their fight for life was too much. I went on to have a daughter in 2012 and another set of twins in jan this year. I was monitored very closely in both pregnancies as I was extremely anxious but there was no issues related to my previous abruption. Mari
  • I had a pregnancy six years after my placenta abruption( my baby survived but also had other complications with breathing difficulties) I was monitored a lot more, lots of medications/ blood thinners as I was classed as high risk. From 30 wks I had twice weekly fetal monitoring, weekly ultrasounds and weekly visits to OB. I became anxious during the week my previous abruption occurred but was supported by my OB. I chose an elective c-section and felt in control ( after having no control previously) & our little baby has healed my heart and completed our family. Leah
  • We lost our twin boys at 20 weeks due to placental abruption. The subsequent pregnancies have been fearful and a difficult journey but one thing I’ve learned from this is that every pregnancy is different. I carried one subsequent baby till term after and now 32 weeks with my next. So far so good. Just be and take one day at the time. Please contact me if you want to have a chat. Wishing you all the best Debbie
  • I had a placenta abruptions , previa , and pre eclampsia with my first born at 29 wks 7 years later we had another bub was on baby aspirin and very close monitoring was in and out of hospital for scares but was fine , had tummy pains at32 wks went in yo be checked had a massive abruption my little boy was born very healthy at 32 wks straight away , he missed out on nicu for 2 wks then contracted nec Kristy
  • I had an Abruption at 36w and 6d and lost our daughter. Just shy of what would have been her first birthday, we found out we were having another baby. It was definitely a scary time. I couldn’t let myself think that he would come home after losing our daughter but we used the same obstetrician and he knew our history and wanted us to bring our baby home, as much as we wanted to. Our son was born at 37w and 3d via planned ceasarian and my placenta had started to deteriorate by then but there was no way of knowing if it would have resulted in another abruption. I’m just glad that he came home safely with us. Teagan
  • I went on to have 2 more children … U get monitored closly have more test compared to a “normal” one but all worked out no. 2 was 9 days late and no.3 was 2 weeks early both ended with c-section but was ok they were happy n healthy and didn’t have any issues . Trudie

    I had a partial placenta abruption at 39 weeks with internal bleeding and a massive blood clot. My daughter was born with no brain activity and all her major organs failing. After 3 weeks in neonatal she made a full recovery and is a very healthy and intelligent 2 year old. I am currently 8 weeks pregnant with my second so hopefully will go to plan. Claire

    I had a placental abruption at 36w 5d resulting in my son being still born on 7/17/13. I just found out I am pregnant with my 2nd child a few day ago, just before his 4th birthday. It helps to read successful pregnancies stories after that experience. My doctor is wonderful and will be monitoring me closely. Every little thing has me nervous I’ll loose this one too. Thanks for the positive stories!

    I had a placental abruption at 26 weeks. I was pregnant with two baby girls…. we unfortunately lost thek both which broke our hearts. They were both stillborn.
    Its been a year now… since we lost them.
    We want to try again for another baby but to be honest I am quite scared for my next pregnancy. I just want a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.

    Hi, 3 weeks ago at 32 weeks pregnant I lost my baby girl, she was stillborn. My pregnancy was great, I had no symptons during my pregnancy. I started having contractions, so I went to the hospital so the doctor could stop them. He managed to stop my contractions, and my baby and babys heart were ok. After 3 days in the hospital, I started having strong contractions, they tried to listen to my babys heart but werent able to. After 1 hour of trying to listen to her heart I had an emergency C-section and my baby girl had already stopped breathing. Hardest day of my life!
    What have you done to try to go back to your “normal” life? What has helped to start healing after losing your baby? Any books?
    Hope everyone is doing better šŸ™‚

    I lost my daughter Sophia at just under 37 weeks. I went into labor and when arriving at the hospital they couldn’t find her heartbeat. I just remember thinking and telling them to “get her out”. I felt like she was still alive but the staff told me they couldn’t perform an emergency c-section because it had been hours since I went into labor and the fact they couldn’t find her heartbeat. Knowing you are going to deliver your daughter who is still born is the most heart-wrenching feeling. I knew five days before her passing that something was wrong. I just felt off. My BP was elevated and I had serious fatigue. To this day I always encourage Moms to go with their gut feeling if something feels off.. to make sure their health provider does EVERYTHING in their power to make sure everyone is healthy and the pregnancy is progressing as it should. In order for me to try and get back to feeling like I could manage day-to-day I began letting myself talk about her. I also spent time again with friends and family with babies.

    I had a hemerage the first 8 weeks of my pregnancy then had an abruption at 30 weeks and had to stay in the hospital 2 weeks then at 32 weeks i had to get an emergency c section.. My baby girl was actually born without 70% of her skin I wonder if it had anything to do with the placental abruption but it doesn’t seem like this has happened to anyone eles. She is 5 weeks old now still in the nicu. I was wondering if I were to ever get pregnant again if I am more likely to have problems..My first was born 7 years ago and she was 2 weeks late and had 0 problems so I was very shocked how diff this last pregnancy and delivery went. I do want more kids but now I’m scared.
