In brief: Indeed !
Home birth with an experienced nurse midwife is reasonably safe .
Normally, after the afterbirth delivers the uterus will contract and slows down bleeding. Hospitals have a dedicated staff and blood bank should this serious obstetrical emergency develop. Talk to your caregiver and assess your particular risk.

In brief: Yes
If there is a placental abruption, placenta previa or undiagnosed placenta accreta which occurs from a previous c/s where the placenta of the current pregnancy grows into the uterine scar. Retained placenta with clots can also cause a hemorrage.
