Doe, 24, underwent a cesarean section to deliver her twins. After the delivery, the on-call obstetrician, Dr. Mohannad Rajjoub, attempted to remove the placenta.
Doe, who suffered from placenta accreta, experienced massive hemorrhaging that required a blood transfusion, which was done approximately 30 minutes later.
A placenta accreta is a very serious pregnancy condition. It occurs when the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall. Often times, the placenta in these cases detaches from the uterine wall after childbirth. This can cause severe blood loss after the delivery, which happened in the case of the birth of the twins.
