Answer: Hi, You are at an increased risk of bleeding again but you will be very closely monitored during the pregnancy and birth for any signs of complications. Visit your GP to discuss your previous birth and the risks of problems this time. Hopefully they can access your medical records so that any possible risks can be identified. Best wishes, Alex.
