very low hemoglobin after transfusion for postpartum hemorrhage?

What is the question: Hello fbruno6. If you are still bleeding, your hemoglobin may remain low. Continued transfusions, if needed, will bring up the hemoglobin. You may also have underlying iron deficiency and that also needs to be treated. I am not sure of what your question is, but hope that the above information is helpful to you.
