Subchorionic Hematoma & A Sunchorionic Bleed

Subchorionic Hematoma & A Sunchorionic Bleed

I had easy pregnancies with my first two kids. No bleeding. No miscarriages. No issues.

So when I got pregnant with my third, I expected the same. Unfortunately it didn't start out that way.

Three days before my 40th birthday, I found out my pregnancy wasn't viable and the baby stopped growing at 6 weeks. I was nine weeks at the time.

So I tried again. And I got pregnant pretty quickly.

Then at nine weeks I was at a wedding and when I went to the bathroom and wiped — I saw bright red blood on the toilet paper. I knew spotting could occur so I went for an ultrasound the next day to check it out.

My doctor told me the baby was fine and they didn't see anything on the ultrasound that would indicate a problem so I was relieved.

Then a week later I went on a car trip to my hometown for a visit. While at my friend's cottage, I awoke around midnight to what felt like I was peeing my pants (sorry for the lack of a better ananolgy). I ran to the bathroom and a waterfall of blood poured  into the toilet. This happened 3 to 4 more times that night between midnight and 5 am. I finally woke up my friend around 3:30 am, and told her I was convinced I was miscarrying and she kept me company while I wept. I was 10 weeks pregnant.

The next day I went back for another ultrasound and my doctor told me I had what they call a 'Subchorionic Hematoma' (SCH) — which is a blood clot on my uterus and it measured a little more than 5 cm. She put me on complete bed rest for a week and then asked me to return the following week for a follow up ultrasound. At my follow up appointment, the subchorionic hematoma grew from over 5 cm to more than 10 cm! I couldn't believe it. It was located at the top of my placenta (above the gestational sac) so my doctor still wanted me to be on what I call 'healing rest'. Meaning, I didn't have to stay in bed per se, but I had to take it easy (no cleaning the house, no lifting my kids, no cleaning out the dishwasher, no walking long distances, no exercising, etc). Luckily I work from home so I could walk up/down the stairs once a day to my office.

I researched subchorionic hematomas as much as possible and found out there is a 50/50 chance of the pregnancy continuing and that should all go well, it should resolve itself at about 20 weeks. There didn't seem to be any treatment – conventional or natural – that could help it resolve it so it was a waiting game. I felt helpless no to be able to do anything to shrink them, but it was one of those things that I had to let be and try not to control the outcome. Definitely a hard thing for me to do.

A week later I went for another ultrasound appointment and found out that the subchorionic hematoma (SCH) had broken up in to two clots that each measured around 5 cm (the baby was growing so it was pushing the clot aside). One of the clots was still above the gesational sac and the other one was moving to the side of it — which was a good sign since it could hopefully bleed out.

I was convinced there had to be something I could do to help resolve the Subchorionic Hematomas considering my profession. Then my answer came. One of my colleagues, Antonia Hagens, the founder of recommended a specific type of energy healing which clears emotional issues, from a man named Franco DeNicola, which I was very open to. I made an appointment to see Franco and at the end of my first session (I was about 13 weeks pregnant at this point), I got up from his table to go to the bathroom and a rush of brown blood was released into the toilet (sorry for the graphic details). I was amazed. I knew something had shifted during that initial treatment and I continued to bleed brown blood for 4-5 more days after that. That Monday I went for a follow up ultrasound and found out that one of the subchorionic hematomas (SCH) was gone! I only had one left that still measured around 5.6cm.

A week later (14 weeks) I went for another ultrasound and the clot was still there, although moving to the side. So I booked another appointment with Franco. After my second energy healing treatment, I got up from the table fully expecting to bleed brown blood, but to my surprise I didn't. I was a little bit disappointment since I was hoping it would bleed out like last time. But when I went for my follow up ultrasound a few days later (at approx 15 weeks), my doctor told me there was no evidence of any subchorionic hematomas. The second one had resolved and I was CLEAR!! What an amazing feeling.

I know energy healing isn't for everyone, but I thought I would share my experience with you in the event you would like to try it.  If you want to learn more about Franco DeNicola, you can visit the Masterpiece Life website. I believe Franco is a superior healer and I would recommend him to anyone who would like to clear any physical and/or emotional issues. I am proof that there IS something you can do to clear subchorionic hematomas and in a very short period of time. As long as you are willing to do the work.
