serena - October 8

Hi i recently had a stillbirth at 27 weeks on sept2/05 due to the umbilical cird wrapped around his neck.He was perfect in every way.We had an ob check up 2 weeks later and got the go ahead to start trying when the bleeding is done.But, my ob did not do an internal exam or anything, i was wondering if you are suppose to? to make sure things have returned to normal.Has anyone lost a baby due to stillbirth and did not have a post partum exam?

Hi there, I also had a stillborn son many years ago. I was going to a midwife at the time and she did not do an internal exam, she said that everything was expelled at the birth and there was no reason to think that anything was left inside. As long as your bleeding stops after a couple / few weeks, I wouldn't stress too much on it. P.S. : we conceived two months later and had a healthy, uneventful pregnancy.
