Post Partum Haemorrhage (PPH)

A Postpartum Haemorrhage (PPH) is defined as blood loss over 500ml after birth for both a vaginal and caesarean birth (it was previously 1000ml for a caesarean). It can be a traumatic experience and is often treated with medication and fundal massage but may also require surgery and a blood transfusion.
