About Postpartum Hemorrhage (PPH)

Postpartum hemorrhage, or PPH, is a rare but serious condition characterized by heavy bleeding after birth. Although some blood loss is normal (approximately half a quart for vaginal birth and about one quart for a Cesarean delivery), postpartum hemorrhage involves significant blood loss that can have serious or deadly consequences. It typically occurs within about a day of giving birth, but in some cases it can happen later, even up to 12 weeks after birth. Approximately 1-5% of women experience postpartum hemorrhage after giving birth.

The following are potential signs and symptoms of postpartum hemorrhage:

  • Heavy, continuous vaginal bleeding
  • Drop in blood pressure
  • Signs of shock: blurry vision, chills, clammy skin, fast heartbeat, or feeling faint, dizzy, or weak
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Pale skin
  • Swelling and pain in the vaginal area or perineum

Fighting for Victims of Malpractice in Maryland & *Nationwide

Obstetricians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals that are involved in postpartum care should know the signs of postpartum hemorrhage and should know how to treat it, or should rapidly refer patients to someone who can. In the case of a misdiagnosis, delayed treatment, or improper treatment, you can hold the at-fault party accountable.

Maryland postpartum hemorrhage lawyer Michael Bereston can help you with this important task. From our office in Annapolis, we help families across Maryland and throughout the United States who have suffered harm due to mismanagement or misdiagnosis of postpartum hemorrhage. We help families who have lost mothers and mothers who have suffered serious harm as a result of this type of medical malpractice, and we have recovered millions of dollars in compensation to help our clients build more stable futures.
