Postpartum hemorrhages can happen 24 hours to 2 weeks after birth.
Even further relating drama arose when Carrie suffered from mastitis.
It can happen because of dehydration when breastfeeding, I was obviously not drinking enough water.
Throughout everything Oliver is the miracle.
But Oliver’s been an angel. Throughout all this he’s been sleeping really well. I think he has secretly known that his mother needed rest. He’s absolutely the best thing that’s ever happened to us — without a doubt.
