In brief: Yes
Unfortunately conditions associated with excessive bleeding can lead to hypovolemic shock.
Those include conditions that can occur in nonpregnant people, like trauma from an accident. They also include conditions in which there is inadequate blood clotting or profuse bleeding from a placental abnormality like placenta previa, from uterine atony, from surgery like cesarean hysterectomy or section.
