I had a very difficult delivery, my blood pressure shot up, my kidneys failed and my liver swole/enlarged. They couldn't figure out what was wrong and had to induce me, after giving birth they found that my placenta was bleeding into my uterus. It is three years now since the birth I am fine and so is the baby, I am pregnant, how dangerous do you think this could be? Do you think there is any risks?

I have not consulted a gynae yet but thought of going to the same one.

I have two children my first child is healthy and my delivery went smooth.

It sounds like you may have had pre-eclampsia. This does have a recurrence rate, so it would be important to book as soon as possible so that your pregnancy can be carefully monitored.
