FETAL DISTRESS AND PPH- IS THERE A LINK?

Patient

Q: Im 24 and throughout my pregnancy i had no complications at all untiL labor, than my babys heart rate dropped and i was given an emergency c section. luckily my baby was perfectly healthy. the dr told me it was fetal distress of labor. when i left the hospital my incision became infected. once that healed about three weeks after my c section i started to vaginally bleed so bad i had to have a blood transfusion. WHAT IS THE REASON THIS HAPPENED AND IS THERE A CONNECTION BETWEEN IT ALL? my uterus is still enlarged six weeks after.
