PPH FACTS

  • "Even with appropriate management, approximately 5% of obstetric patients will experience PPH, and 1% of vaginal deliveries will result in severe PPH." 1                                                                                                                                                      
  • "More than half of all maternal deaths occur within 24 hours of delivery, most commonly from excessive bleeding. An estimated 140,000 women die of postpartum hemorrhage each year worldwide. That's 1 every 4 minutes." 2                                                                                                                                                                                              
  •  The US statistics show 6.17 deaths per 1000 in 2014. 3
