She tryed to have it normal they broke her water then inserted probes to monitor the baby and her contractions. after a wile when the babys heart reat was not recovering after the contractions the Dr called for a csection. when they got in they found cloted blood and then found a puncture in her uterus. My question is could the Dr have done this and now he is telling us not to have any more children is that true.

Your wife has possibly suffered a ruptured uterus in labor. This is a life-threatening condition for both mother and baby. The only treatment is C-section. There will have been bleeding which accounts for the blood the doctor found. This will not have been caused by the doctor. However, it does not necessarily mean you cannot have any more children but there would be risks that this could happen again in labour therefore, a planned C-section would be the safest delivery in the future.

hi,thanks for query.This might be because of obstructed labor.At times in some cases when baby is large or the passage is small ,the uterus tries to contract and expel the baby out as the labor begins,but due to obstruction or non descent of baby properly this can happen.You can discuss this with your doctor.Any doctor will try to put his best to avoid any complication like this.
wishing you good health.
